Saturday I went to see the "I Pity the Dolls" show at the Orchard Street Art Gallery.
You see, there's this guy, and he's been collecting Mr. T dolls and now he has over 150 of them and now they're on exhibit there until July.
The dolls were all made from this pattern book that was published in 1984. It's all explained a lot better here. (I like it when it says on that page: "This is the most important collection of Mr. T. handmade dolls in existence.")
Also, they were playing this old Mr. T Video that I think I remember seeing at somepoint during my gradeschool education. I think.
There was other Mr. T-related art on hand as well.
But really, it was all about the dolls . . .
Also, they had a bunch of new dolls that had recently been made by a variety of artists. It seemed that many of the artists interpreted the pattern quite liberally.
Undoubtably the most important collection of homemade Mr. T dolls that I have ever seen.
