Play in Museums – Design for the Modern Child at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Thanks to reader Anna for alerting me to two playful exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Design for the Modern Child runs May 25  – October 14, 2013 and features mostly toy objects, but also the looming cardboard chimneys of the cardboard cubby house by Australia’s Bennett and Trimble, with plans for self-construction available.  If you go to the exhibit, pick up the plans for us?

All the galleries in the PMA’s Perelman Annex will be devoted to child-themed exhibits for the summer, including Candy-Coated Wonderland, featuring historic children’s fancy dress costumes from the museum’s collection.
