About BadAss Miniatures: This new exhibition is presented by D. Thomas Miniatures and co-curated by Kate Ünver, founder of the Daily Mini and presents emerging perspectives in the miniature arts and represents a novel movement that challenges the status quo in the miniature art form through the presentation of unconventional ideas and concepts. BadAss aims to push the envelope on the traditional (rethink the dollhouse!) with an edgy and bold attitude showcasing the most jaw-dropping, surprising—maybe even shocking—miniature badassery to hit the 21st century.
Select works from BadAss Miniatures will be presented at The Guild Show on September 22 and 23 at the Windsor Marriott in Hartford CT and pop up locations (details to follow!). BadAss is not affiliated, sponsored or endorsed by IGMA.
