The MunNY Exhibit for Design Week in NYC was an epic event this past Satuday. With 23 iconic New York designers each working on a Mega MUNNY, the show was nothing less than spectacular. All of the custom works are up for auction online with proceeds benefiting the Robin Hood Organization. If you were not lucky enough to attend, check out the pics from the opening festivities.

    In general it from what I could see, some of the customizers that work with the figures on the daily do a better job than most of the ones in the show. I know most of the designers involved probably had better things to do but why put on a show with BIG name and mediocre pieces?

      That is the way I felt from the photos. The designers had better things to do than work on some Munny's and it was reflected in their work. Their not getting paid big bucks, if anything at all, so why would they put a ton of time into it? I had high expectations, but wasn't surprised with the results. I guess leave the great transformations to the the artists, not the "top NY designers".

    I had emailed to sign up for the event, but told in an email that too many people signed up, and I couldn't go. Perhaps a venue with more space next time?

    But judging from the pictures it must have been legendary

    Bit upset that we all were treated so badly in line! I was on the list and ended up giving up on entering due to the poor event planning and the constant yelling of security. Supposedly they were at capacity and weren't letting anyone in until all the designers had arrived. Hour+ wasted in line. LAME!
