30th Anniversary Rainbow Brite Art Show

In recent weeks, Hallmark headquarters put together a Rainbow Brite exhibit for her 30th anniversary. It was designed to provide inspiration for their creative employee teams, and is currently being shown to employees in their 9th floor gallery. It is not open to the public, but thankfully a good friend of mine, Justin Perryman, is related to a Hallmark employee and was able to take a tour himself. He took these pictures, and was given permission to share them with the world. Some of the artwork was just for fun, but some may be used in future projects, so let's keep our fingers crossed! :) All info and images are ©Hallmark Cards, Inc.

In the first section of the exhibit, you will find merchandise, protoypes and custom dolls:








In the second part, you'll see more prototypes, publications, merchandise, and storyboards:









You can even get your picture taken wearing a Rainbow Brite snuggie! ;) You're so cute Justin!


There is also fan art created by Hallmark employees:










But my favorite part of all are the big screen tvs around the exhibit showing Rainbow Brite episodes, pictures of Rainbow Brite fans, and never-before-seen video of relaunch ideas!




We can only cross our fingers and hope that Hallmark is cooking up something new and wonderful for our favorite super hero, and will hopefully make this exhibit available to the public in the future :)
