Greg Rivera and Mike Essl, co-owners of an amazing Mr. T collection, are inviting artists to submit designs for an upcoming art show called “I Pity the Dolls!: Contemporary Artists Create Homemade Mr.T Dolls.”
The dolls are based on the Cabbage Patch Kid doll design. Each participant will be given a Mr.T doll pattern book including a paper pattern that you can cut the fabric to and detailed instructions on sewing and dressing the doll.
The exhibition will take place at the Orchard Street Gallery, Manhattan from June 9th through July 10th. The dolls will be sold for a charity of Mr. T’s choosing as well as Cancer Care, and American Cancer Society-Rally for Life.
