Wheels and Heels: The Big Noise Around Little Toys at the Norton Museum of Art

THROUGH OCTOBER 26 — Norton Museum of Art

It’s no secret that I love toys.  Also not a secret, there’s no shame in my game regarding that fact. Currently on display at the Norton Museum of Art, an exhibit focused on dolls and miniature cars! I know where I’ll be.

Regular admission is $12 per person, but Palm Beach County residents pay NOTHING the first Saturday of each month, and West Palm Beach residents NEVER pay on Saturdays.  *muhaha*  :dry cough:

The exhibition takes a playful look at two iconic toys  the miniature car, epitomized by Matchbox and Hot Wheels brands, and the “teenage doll,” the most famous of which is Barbie. Wheels and Heels will fascinate audiences of all ages while exploring the history of these beloved toys. It features numerous editions of the toys, accessories, play sets, vintage advertisements, design drawings, television commercials, and marketing publications, as well as an interactive playroom.
