MUJI is delighted to announce it will host an exhibition of children's artwork and a digital interactive installation by Tokyo-based interactive studio Naked Inc. to benefit Kids Earth Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to environmental health and global peace. The exhibition will be on view from Thursday, October 20th to November 22nd at MUJI's Fifth Avenue flagship location.
The exhibition, entitled Kids Earth Project, will feature artwork created by children around the world curated by the Kids Earth Fund. There will also be a digital display of illustrations created by New York City-based kids ages 5-12 during a MUJI-sponsored workshop held at the Fifth Avenue flagship store. These pieces display a sense of purity and simplicity that only children can visualize, reflecting Kids Earth Funds' mission of opening cross-cultural communication and echoing MUJI's human-centered approach to retail.
MUJI has selected three of the Kids Earth artworks to be made into limited edition MUJI My Bags, which will be on sale for $5.00 at the Fifth Avenue store for the duration of the exhibit. All proceeds from the sale of these bags will go to Kids Earth Fund to help facilitate their global mission statement advocating peace and conservation.
In addition to the children's artwork, MUJI collaborated with the digital design studio, Naked Inc., to create an interactive digital firework display, which will be projected on the store wall on the main floor of the flagship from dusk to closing time. Visitors can interact with the project by touching the wall causing the fireworks to sporadically burst across the screen.http://www.muji.com/us/feature/kidsearthfund/
