It's a Barbie World

It's a Barbie World

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Barbie dolls entering into American popular culture. From the beginning, the focus has been on the dolls, but Barbie has become a recognized brand worldwide with TV shows, comic books, toys, and even video games. To celebrate this popular culture behemoth, Art 21 will feature an exhibition titled “The Art of Barbie: Homage to a Global Icon” from March 9, 2019, until April 6, 2019. The beautiful gallery space is only about half an hour from the Bonaventure Resort and Spa. This free exhibit will be open every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 7-9PM during that span. In addition to the art display, visitors can enjoy food, drinks, and even some special prizes. The highlight of this celebration of all things Barbie is the interactive section where pictures are not only allowed, but encouraged. Barbie and all of her friends have come a long way in 60 years, and this is your opportunity to celebrate the popular toy empire.
