Out of The Box Exhibition

Submitted by OPAL720art on Thu, 07/26/2018 - 8:24pm

Installation and collaborative exhibition curated by eco-artist Bryan Northup 

Using unconventional, found materials often tossed in the trash can, Oak Park Art League, Artist Member Bryan Northup will create a site-specific sculptural installation that will incorporate submissions from an open call for artists. 

Artists are asked to transform a box of their choosing into a work of art that fits within their own body of work.

The Oak Park Art League (OPAL) presents Out of the Box! This call challenges artists to investigate the outer corners of creativity and processes through the ubiquitous and utilitarian box (made of any material). Participating artists are invited to use their chosen media or examine new methods to transform this mundane cube into a gallery-worthy work of art. In exploring the duality of practical vs precious, artists may paint, collage, cut, contort, fill, weave, laminate, ornament, or adapt their box in any way they choose to create 2D, 3D, or installation work for this artist collective in OPAL’s historic Carriage House Gallery.

*Artists may use any box of their choosing with the longest dimension being no longer than 30"
