The Box Project
San Francisco, CA 94102
Come build a cardboard world at the Asian Art Museum!
The Box Project is a workshop for parents and kids developed by San Francisco artist, Eliza Gregory. Participants alter and play with cardboard boxes as they would at home, but on an unusually grand scale. Materials include reused cardboard donated by local businesses, which we recycle at the end of the day. Professional parenting educator Nancy Gapasin Gnass curates information about parenting and creativity for participants to take home, and is on hand to answer questions and provide an intellectual framework for the experience.
The Box Project celebrates acts of creativity that take place in the home by temporarily placing them in a museum context to catalyze a conversation about creativity, parenting and the gallery space as a creative hub. The project asks: Can we teach creativity? What does that look like? When is parenting itself fundamentally about creativity? How can we become better parents by acknowledging those times? And how can the museum support families in this endeavor?
