Bird curates “Wheels and Heels”

Matt Bird (Assistant Professor, Industrial Design) will curate a new exhibition at the Norton Museum of Art, West Palm Beach, Fla.

Wheels and Heels: The Big Noise Around Little Toys is now open through  October 26, 2014.  The exhibition takes a playful look at two iconic toys – the miniature car, epitomized by Matchbox and Hot Wheels brands, and the “teenage doll,” the most famous of which is Barbie. Wheels and Heels features numerous editions of the toys, accessories, play sets, vintage advertisements, design drawings, television commercials, and marketing publications, as well as an interactive playroom.
