Fun for the whole family!
This exhibition will feature more than 100 games, gadgets and toys that have inspired childhood imagination for decades. Guests will see all the classics, from pedal cars and tin toys to vintage games, action figures and trains. One of the most significant portions of the exhibition comes from Kentucky poet Frank X. Walker who has gathered a collection of approximately 200 black superhero action figures and posters. KMAC will display more than thirty of them, including action figures from comics, movies, sports and entertainment, such as Jimmie Hendrix, Dr. J, Jim Brown, the Notorious B.I.G., Blade, Spawn and many more. Of specific local interest will be the Milton Bradley Toonerville Trolley board game from the 1920’s and the cast iron and tin trolley cars of the famous Trolley. The inspiration for the board game was derived from the Toonerville Folks comic panel, which was written and illustrated by Louisville Native Fountain Fox, Jr. It ran from 1913 to 1955 in 250 to 300 newspapers across North America. This exhibition is generously sponsored by Merrily Orsini and Rick Heath and Marlene and David Grissom.
