For Immediate Release:

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Join curator John Lustig on a walking tour of the exhibition "Toy Box Inspiration Through Play" at the Illinois State Museum in Springfield on Tuesday, February 20 from 7:00-8:00 p.m.

Toys are an opportunity to play, learn and ultimately serve as a repository for memory. The history of toy manufacturing in Illinois is rooted deeply in the culture, as are artists who source toys and games as a means for their expression. The talk will highlight the intersections between creative industry and artistic expression.

The program is free and open to the public.  The Illinois State Museum is located at 502 S. Spring St., Springfield.  For more information, email the ISM at events@illinoisstatemuseum.org or phone at 217-558-6696.
