Beginning in 1988, the Norton Family sent a limited edition Christmas gift to a wide list of friends in the art community including art institutions. Commissioned by an artist, the gift encompassed a variety of multi-media artworks such as a porcelain ashtray, a printed fan, a woven blanket, a lifesaver, a dollhouse and a crazy coffee cup all of which later became part of the Norton Family Art Projects. Liam Hopkins, founder of Lazerian, takes his popular pop up dog and presents it as the 2016 Norton Christmas gift. The work arrives with a pop up dog (a) and a set of instructions which opens to reveal a photo array of pop up dogs (b).
