‘Tis the season for toy drives, but here is one that we’ve been to, we like, and think is totally worth going to, especially if you want your generosity mixed with a dash of hot local art, a sweet soundtrack and good looking people. The annual Toys In The Attic show is back at the Soo Visual Arts Center, and it’s a great chance to get some of your favorite local artists and custom toys while giving to Toys For Tots. From their press release:

Guests are asked to help out children in need by bringing a new (unwrapped) toy* to the show. In return, they will receive one of the event official poster ** prints designed by Minneapolis artist Lonny Unitus. If you forget your toy, there is a suggested donation of $1-$5 at the door. All toys and door donations are collected by Toys for Tots.

*No Military Toys please. **While supplies last.

Local artists have created limited edition runs of toy-inspired art prints for sale at the event – each print is numbered and signed. All poster prints are sold for $30 (unframed).

Custom toy artists from around the world have donate a unique art toy for our silent auction. The minimum bid for each toy is $50. The Silent Auction ends @ 8:30 PM.

Among the artists who will have work available are John Grider/Broken Crow, Jennifer Davis and Deuce 7, and the DJ set is by Solid Gold, so pack your sled and kick up your heels. Plus, you can make a full day of it by hitting up the No Coast Craft-O-Rama at the Midtown Exchange earlier on, so you might be generous AND productive today.
