Uncanny! King of Prussia Mall has partnered with Philadelphia-based Mothership Art Gallery and Designer Toy Store to bring a one-of-a-kind art exhibition to the greater Philadelphia area. "Art is a staple of the comic book and pop culture scene; toys, statues, and other collectibles are a 3D extension of the culture. Who doesn't want to own a cool piece of art from their favorite comic book, television show, anime, or movie? This partnership just made sense and allows us to bring unique products into our shop." said Rob McFee, Manager of the Uncanny! King of Prussia location.
Alex Rivera aka "Playful Gorilla" is Manager of Mothership Art Gallery and Designer Toy Store, and also one of the world's premiere toy designers. He has over 7,000 followers on Instagram and can be seen at conventions all over the world, most recently featured at the Philadelphia Auto Show. When asked about the partnership with Uncanny! he had this to say, " We are very excited about partnering with Uncanny! Their stores are amazing! We are looking forward to bringing their community unique art that will celebrate their fandom and captivate their minds."
The show is called "Pop Cult. Insanity" and will be on display at the Uncanny! King of Prussia Mall location throughout the month of February, beginning with a "First Friday" Event on February 3rd from 6pm-9pm.
