Toyland: Artifacts of Youth
November 17, 2022 – March 5, 2023
Organized by William King Museum of Art & Presented in The Glenn C. Price & The Strongwell Galleries
This holiday season, explore the wonders of youth through children’s playthings from the past two centuries. From beloved homemade toys of the nineteenth century to vintage mass-produced toys from pop culture that are still remembered today, Toyland: Artifacts of Youth, on display at William King Museum of Art in Abingdon VA, will evoke feelings of nostalgia for all ages.
Step into Toyland and be transported back to the blissful days of childhood. The exhibit will feature miniatures, toys, gifts, and traditions that children of Southwest Virginia and Northeast Tennessee would have enjoyed during the holiday season as well as year-round. Whether these toys were made here or just played with here, they represent the spirit of youth throughout the history of the region and are sure to inspire whimsical reflections of the past.
