It's Not a Doll, It's an Action Figure
Anyway, an art gallery in Florida is showcasing some original art based on action figures and comic book heroes. The exhibit is called, "It's Not a Doll, It's an Action Figure."
Guest curator Anna Pants assembled a talented and diverse group of 14 international artists to participate in the show. Pants said, “Each artist was asked to recreate the memory of their favorite action figure and/or explore the fine line between an action figure and a doll.”Bear and Bird owner/chief curator Amanda Magnetta-Ottati passed the curatorial torch for this special engagement to artist A. Pants after seeing the concept develop on Pants’ popular blog site, www.nerdsquared.com. The theme is especially appropriate for Bear and Bird Gallery, which sits atop Tate’s Comics, a popular shopping destination for toys, collectables, dolls, and action figures.
