Artists .... time for a fun installation, "Wots in the Box?". First time ever!! ... one thread linking local artists, patrons, and NPR. Big Bend Art Council and The Back Room want to encourage artists and patrons to support the arts and NPR. This is a daring way for a patron of the arts to get a new piece of art. Artists put art in a box. Artwork is described by artist, however the work is purchased unseen. The art is purchased for either 25, 50, or 100 dollars. Original works ... so this is a great way for Patrons to begin or continue to collect art. We will have several pieces from local artists that are debuting in this installation. Exciting! We are doing a call for art. Reaching out to local artists to jump on board for this installation. Now for a twist.... We all listen to Marfa Public Radio!!! Artist can donate the sales of their art by checking the donate to NPR box. Even though patrons cannot see the art ....they can see the outside of the box, which the artist will do up in black and white. Please join us in this installation. This is the perfect opportunity to move inventory, an odd piece, or try something new. No, the art does not need to be recycled art! However, the installation will be in the window at Gallery on the Square during the R3 show. Call of art with details are can be found on facebook at:https://www.facebook.com/events/366183217198912/ or simply send an email request to email@example.com.
