The Box Project: Uncommon Threads

  • 441 Main St.
  • Racine, WI
Overview

Organized by the Cotsen Foundation for Academic Research (CFAR) and the Racine Art Museum, this traveling exhibition presents works commissioned by Lloyd Cotsen between 2004 and 2013 together with 22 large-scale fiber art pieces on loan.

Combining the box project commissions (works that fit within a 14 x 14-inch or a 14 x 23-inch box) and large-scale works along with artist interviews, material samples, maquettes, correspondence, and concept sketches, this exhibition offers insight about the artists and their processes.

"The Box Project" showcases the artists' exploration of material and concept, their willingness to push the definitions of fiber, and the dynamics of the collector/artist relationship. On exhibit from Sunday, May 21 through Sunday, Aug. 27.

Racine Art Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; 12 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Closed Mondays and federal holidays. Admission: $5, adults; $3, seniors and students.
