Virtually Assembled: An *Assembly Required Experience

February 6 @ 1:00 pm - February 7 @ 9:00 pm


*Assembly Required, the premiere Southeast destination for designer, bootleg and art toy artists and collectors is going VIRTUAL, with their event Virtually Assembled: An *Assembly Required Experience. Streaming live February 6-7, 2021 on, the event will include interviews with artists, studio tours, artist exclusives, surprises from Toybox, America’s Favorite Cartoon Witch, and much, much more!

With molding, and production techniques, designer toy artists echo the production methods of traditional toy manufacturers. Refining inspiration from a variety of underground and subcultural elements, *Assembly Required honors this true to form, turn of the century avant-garde/pop surrealistic art movement. 2021 will be *Assembly Required’s third year celebrating this melting pot of artistic expression.
