Inspired Gifts have hit the big time! We are very happy to share with you that UNICEF Inspired Gifts are included in an exhibition about design for children that is currently on view at New Yorkâ€™s Museum of Modern Art. The MoMA show, called â€śCentury of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000,â€ť looks at how modernist thinking has influenced designing for children in the 20th Century. The show includes items like child-sized desks, pop-up books and playground designs,Â and also features three Inspired Gifts: aÂ School-in-a-Box kit, Ready-to-Eat Therapeutic Food, and a baby scale.
MoMA alsoÂ reproduced a UNICEF poster designed by Jukka Veistola, which was awarded first prize in an international competition for the UNICEF Hunger campaign in Paris inÂ 1969. The poster designÂ is one of 12 postcards that were created for the exhibition.
We are proud that MoMA has recognized UNICEFâ€™s innovative work in child survival and development, and that museumgoers now have the chance to see firsthand the tools that UNICEF uses in the field.
The exhibition runs until November 5 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
