About this Exhibit

Plays Well with Others is an exhibition of local and national artists who create work that engages with play and toys in interactive, mischievous and subversive ways. Each of the Plays Well with Others artists expertly articulates broad concepts centered around play using media ranging from animation to inflatable sculpture to beading.

The Alliance for the Arts gallery and gift shop hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. or by appointment by contacting Ehren at [email protected]

Online Artist Talks will be hosted September 18, September 28 and October 5  from 6 – 7 p.m. These behind-the-scenes looks offer unique insight into each artists’ inspiration, process and the context behind the work. Be part of the conversation, express your thoughts and ideas or simply sit back and enjoy the discussion. Pre-registration is required at
