This exhibition explores the history and artistry of early cast iron toys, which were produced from about 1880 to the second World War. Marketed as “indestructible” toys for children, they were miniature replicas of everything from household items like stoves to Model “T” cars, trucks, trains, and airplanes.
This exhibition highlights the long running series of art books published by the TAMU Press. The Frank H. Wardlaw Art Collection was developed alongside the publishing of these books when each featured artist donated a painting to the collection. Visitors to the exhibition can see the original painting and thumb through the book it was published in. An exhibition catalog is also available.
