For the first time ever (if you’re in LA in March), you’ll be able to see the “obvious plants” in person at a pop-up exhibition Obvious Plant’s Museum of Toys in Mid-City at Start LA.
More than a hundred toys and games will be on display and most likely crowd your social media feeds for how subversively kitschy they all are. Opening night, which happens to be free, has already sold out, but you can attend on other days for $10 and each night offers something different.
Schedule is as follows:
March 1st (7-11pm) Opening Night. Free Entry. RSVP required.
March 2nd (12-9pm) Poorly Drawn Lines Pop-Up
March 3rd (12-9pm) Everything is Terrible Pop-Up
