Munny Makers

“Frederick Marine,” by Mike Arin.

A “munny” is a do-it-yourself vinyl figure with movable joints, made by a company called Kid Robot. It has become very trendy, as artists try to come up with unique ways of decorating the dolls, using pens, pencils, markers, paint and other materials.

Speakeasy Art Gallery in Boonton, NJ, is presenting a “Munny Makers” exhibit from December 7-30, and three artists from Matheny’s Arts Access Program—Mike Arin, Jenny Cox and Alex Stojko—have had their munnys accepted in the show.

“Ellen,” by Jenny Cox.

Speakeasy Art showcases the work of both international and local contemporary artists. It holds a new reception on the first Friday of every month. Arts Access enables people with disabilities to create fine art, assisted by professional artist-facilitators.
