Kidrobot is celebrating the exciting journey they’ve taken over the last 10 years with an epic soiree: Kidrobot X: 10 Years of Art + Design. To commemorate this past decade of beautiful plastic, fashion and collaboration Kidrobot New York will host a 10 day gallery style exhibition from October 12- 22. It will kick off with an invite only VIP party and feature multiple collections of past designs, a charity auction of custom Dunnys, an exclusive 8-inch Dunny release and more.
The art toy retrospective will be segmented in various timeline collections: Kidrobots, Dunnys, Black and a selection of notable releases and collaborations Kidrobot has produced. This exhibition will also feature 10 incredible custom 20-inch and 8-inch Dunnys by some of your favorite Kidrobot artists: MAD, Frank Kozik, kaNO, Chuckboy, 64 Colors, Jeremyville, Aya Kakeda, Scribe and Mishk
a. These one-of-a-kind creations will be up for silent auction with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Art Start, a 20+ year award winning organization changing the lives of at-risk youth in NYC with creative arts.
The fine folks at Art Start will be in the house on Wednesday, October 17 for a DIY workshop where they will be getting crafty with kids and customizing MUNNYWORLD figures from 5-7 pm. The one and only Jeremyville will also join them for a live canvas painting and artist talk on Friday, October 19 from 6-8pm. Kidrobot X will end with a fancy schmancy closing party on the evening of October 22 from 7-9 pm.
As part of the Kidrobot X anniversary celebration as well, Kidrobot New York will be serving up the super limited Silver King 8-inch Dunny by Tristan Eaton. This KRNY exclusive anniversary release will be very high in demand and extra low in supply, limited to 300 worldwide, only $50 each. In order to level the playing field, KRNY will be busting out a very limited daily allotment for all 10 days and drawing random names for a chance to buy one and only one Silver King. All names entered daily will be in the running all throughout the entire Kidrobot X exhibition. The daily winners will be contacted once and only once via email. Winners will have 24 hours and only 24 hours to respond and confirm your toy. All winners (with ID) must be present at KRNY to purchase the Silver King before Wednesday, October 24.
