DesignerCon 2021The 1920s Silver Screen Art Show joins the Golden Age of Animation
Over 30 DKE artists create hand made action figure editions
November 12-14 2021

Every year DesignerCon organizes events and aesthetics around an important pop-culture theme. For this edition of DCON, the expo celebrates Gold Timey: The Golden Age of Animation with an art show, curated by Carmen “Jane Dope” Acosta. DKE Toys was asked to curate a selection of hand made action figure editions to be included in the main art show, featuring characters from The 1920s Silver Screen. Over 30 artists created small editions.

All art show editions will be for sale thru the DKE online store FIRST at NOON PACIFIC on Friday November 5th. Anything not sold out may be temporarily taken off the site to go to the live show starting on November 12th. And anything left over will go back on the site when we return.

At DCON the figures will be exhibited at the DKE booth as well as included in the main DCON Art Show Space.

About DesignerConFounded in 2005 by Ben Goretsky, DesignerCon brings together artists, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in the designer toy / vinyl collectibles market and has grown to incorporate everything in the design world including apparel, plush, printing, sculpture, designer toys, and both fine and urban art. The steady growth DesignerCon has enjoyed correlates with its popularity in today’s art nerd, geek culture; collectors and designer toy lovers alike wait through the night for new releases, pre-orders for new artist collaboration apparel are sold out within minutes, and artists use the convention as an opportunity to announce exclusive releases and collaborations.
