Get ready, Santa Fe. SFR's Project Art Box is here and is set to make a splash this Friday.
We were overwhelmed by the amount of amazing proposals submitted via an open call, and thanks to a committee that included the City of Santa Fe Art Commission director Debra Garcia y Griego, Santa Fe Art Institute deputy director Michelle Laflamme-Childs and SITE Santa Fe assistant curator Janet Dees, the best 19 were selected—which alongside the box embellished by OBEY's Shepard Fairey during his last visit to town—makes for an unprecedented number of art boxes pulled off in a single market at a time, alt-weklies or otherwise.
Joining Fairey are Jamison Chas Banks, Matthew Chase-Daniel, Erin Currier, Lisa Danner, Wrona and James Gall, Lupe Garza, Teri Greeves, Deborah Grossman, Ben Haggard, Shari Kessler, Rob Krumholz, Grant Kosh, Michael Lahargoue and Sophia Livingston, Arthur Lopez, Ehren Natay, Fredrick Prescott, Valerie Rangel, Leif Smith and Prakash Spex.
