The Box Project
San Francisco, CA 94102
Come build a cardboard world with us!
On Jun. 5, the Box Project returns to the Asian Art Museum. Developed by artist Eliza Gregory, this workshop invites parents and children to alter and play with reused cardboard boxes as they would at home, but on an unusually grand scale. Be sure to stick around for the Moment of Destruction — a chance to summon your inner beast and destroy the projects that were built during the day.
Professional parenting educator Nancy Gapasin Gnass curates information about parenting and creativity for participants to take home, and, along with Gregory, 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? For more information, visit www.theboxproject.org.
