BEHOLD! The Art of Plush

Plushtastrophe Round 4 at Rotofugi


Opening night is April 8, 2005
7pm-11pm
Free Drinks
DJ Clayton Counts

Show curator Bwana Spoons says:

When I feel a plushy in my hands, and hold it close to my heart, I feel warm inside. That is why I must do the Plushtastrophe The big question is. What is plush? I don’t think there is a clear definition, however… there are a few telltale signs of a good plush. It is usually a bit soft, sometimes furry, maybe has an eye or two, and some kind of appendage.

Plushtastrophe is a gathering of a few of my favorite designers, illustrators, and plush makers from places near and far. When all is said and done there will be upwards of 100 fancy fabric critters for your pleasure and mine.

Get your proper hookups of all the latest plushy info at rotofugi.com grasshutcorp.com and strangeco.com.


This is the list of confirmed peeples for the Plushtastrophe show. Rotofugi will probably be adding some more, especially Chicago plush artists...

holy be-jesus this show is going to knock people back into the stoneage. it's THAT good.

never before has there been a plush exhibition that includes so many artists and designers from so many places. that coupled with a space like rotofugi -- damn. don't even get me started.

as whitney said, every square inch of the store will be covered in plush. it's gonna rock.

:TCIMH-SadRoto:

No Zook? Bummer. It promises to be quite a spectacle, for sure!

FYI, start clearing your calendar now for July 8. That's the opening night for the Crossover Show at Rotofugi. You definitely don't want to miss that!

And we may or may not have a June event that I can't quite talk about yet that I am SURE would be worth the trip to Chi-town.

Ahhh, so much stuff happening! :TCIMH-SmileRoto: :TCIMH-SmileRoto:
