Announcing something new! The first ever PLUSH RUSH! It's a whole bunch of plushy, art goodness held in Columbus Ohio and hosted by Mr. Pickles, Jenny Harada & Acme Art Company. PLUSH RUSH will celebrate handmade plush from over 80 artists around the globe!
What is plush, you might ask? Some may describe it as squishy, squashy fabric-y forms of art, others may say that plushies are handmade warm & fuzzy toys. They may be made out of felt, flannel, fleece, velvet – whatever! Some have faces! Others wear funny t-shirts! One thing is for sure – they’re all made with love!
PLUSH RUSH launches at Acme Art Co. (1230 Courtland Ave in the Short
North) Saturday, December 3rd, with the Opening Reception and has its
grand finale on December 17th with Acme’s HOLIDAZE event.
The PLUSH RUSH Opening Day will offer something special for
central-Ohio plush-o-philes - a Make Your Own Plush Workshop! Amateur
artistes can make their very own stuffed creation (fabrics and supplies
provided!). The workshop will be held at 5pm (based on
pre-registrations). Workshop registration will be available in
November via the Plush Rush website. Registration fee is currently
estimated at $15.00. The Opening Reception will also begin at 5pm with
music, munchies & merriment. Kids of all ages welcome!
Plushies from the show will be on display and available for sale at
Acme Art Company and through the PLUSH RUSH website. Won’t they make
the PERFECT presents for everyone on your shopping list? Yes. Yes,
