Since the rules for the Denver Art Museum's Design After Dark event stipulate that donated objects must fit inside a 12" x 12" x 12" vitrine, what were we supposed to do? We couldn't just debigulate the full-size version since the rebigulator is on the fritz. So we made this miniature version and added a wrinkle: if the winning bidder puts sufficient skin in the game and bids over a certain amount (we'll figure out that amount with the museum staff), they get a key to unlock a full-size walnut Armadillo (which we'll chain up somewhere in the wild). And not just any full-size walnut Armadillo—walnut Armadillo number 1, the first and original. You might even be able to delude yourself into thinking it could be worth big money someday. This year's Design After Dark will be at RedLine Galleryon January 22. Save the date and don't be a skinflint.
