About this project

The Altered Barbie Exhibition is a local creative re-use community of artists.  Ken and Barbie, our modern day material icons, are transformed from the superficial into creative and relevant identities.  This show caters to both professional and start up artists.

San Francisco’s Altered Barbie Exhibition would like to invite you to support our 9th annual gathering and show. Your support / contribution will be helping hundreds of artists express themselves in a non-competitive fun, political and interactive show.

Altered Barbie has an amazing  website for viewing and buying the work as well as an annual live exhibition.  All funding that is donated through Kickstarter will go towards running the website, the making of the AlteredBarbie Exhibition 2011, and fiscal support for the artists that are working the show.
