The Art Box Project is Launched!
A year after the idea was conceived The Art Box Project is now officially launched! What is The Art Box Project? Simply put, it is a box filled with art supplies that will travel (hopefully far and wide) to meet up with different people along the way who will use the materials in the box to create works of art. The "artists" of the project will submit photos of their artwork to be published here and then pass the box on to another person somewhere else. The idea is to create a global community of people connected through art (whether or not they originally considered themselves an artist). Follow the blog to see where The Art Box Project travels, the people who come into contact with the box, and the artistic creations that come through it!
The artist of the actual box is Ron Smith. He used leftover (from a surfboard project) red and white cedar wood that originally came from a sustainable forestry mill in Maine. The logo was burned into the top of the box and a handle was attached for easier transportation. (Thanks dad, if it weren't for you, the project might not have ever left the drawing board)!
