We’re open today from 10 AM—4 PM
MCASD is collaborating with artist Mr. B Baby to bring the limited edition plush “Chucho” to The Shop. Chucho is a piñata character typically drawn with visible cracks, teaching us that it’s okay to have flaws.
On Thursday, February 16, 2023, MCASD will also host a free event with Mr B Baby, where guests will learn more about the creation of Chucho and what he means to her. There will be music, an opportunity to take pictures with two life-sized Chucho mascots, and a raffle.
More about the artist:
Raised in San Diego, Mr. B Baby’s artwork is a whimsical twist, exploring the relationship between Mexican folk art and children’s books by combining the cultural world with a playful, colorful touch. Growing up in a predominantly Spanish-speaking home, she is heavily influenced by her community and Puerto Rican/Mexican upbringing, using elements of her heritage as inspiration for her striking and lively artwork. By combining vibrant colors with traditional imagery, she creates a wide range of characters who all tell their own unique story and hopes to bring happiness and joy to her collectors and her community through her creations.
