CURATED BOX SETS
From 2011 to 2016, our curated box sets were a capsule collection of original works released four times a year, packaged in hand-made boxes by Seattle woodworker Steve Leroux. We viewed each wooden box as a complete exhibition-- a small 9 x 12 x 2 inch "gallery" which contained a thoughtfully curated selection of unique artworks by two different artists, and a literary project by a featured writer. Collectors were able purchase a box as a single item, or subscribe to an entire year's worth in advance! When we began this project, we wanted to create accessibility to original works with an approachable price point--like a collector starter kit! This program quickly became a lead-in to our brick-and-mortar gallery space, public programming, and publications through 2018, and continues to be a valuable template for us today.
