Will Rimel’s Funk Muffins collection is based on children’s toys and figurines. Inspired by the designer artist-made toy movement, Rimel found a perfect outlet for creativity which reflects his unique worldview. The artist explains “everyone can relate to toys… I can take ideas like social masking, the constant unknown of life and figuring out just where I belong in the world and put those concepts into a toy. Creating toys gives me the ability to address serious thoughts while having a fun lighthearted approach to them.”
The exhibition runs through July 1, 2020 in the Ticketing Lounge, which is located in the Arrivals area of Terminal 1. The exhibition is part of the Lambert Art and Culture Program’s Temporary Exhibition Program which is supported by the Regional Arts Commission of St. Louis.
