Liberty Arts presents the Box Show

From its humble beginnings as an ancient superstitious naval tradition to the rich, allusive works of artist Joseph Cornell, the shadow box has served as a treasure chest of life’s secrets, mementos, mysteries, dreams, poetic juxtapositions and cherished symbols.

Mo Williams - Box Show

Describing his shadow box process, Cornell once said, “Everything can be used, but of course one doesn’t know it at the time. How does one know what a certain object will tell another.”

Each treasure box in this piece of work is available to purchase for $10.00.
Gallery visitors have the opportunity to hunt for their treasure in the beautifully handmade boxes filled with the Flotsam & Jetsam of various adventures.

Once they find the box that will be theirs we tie a string around the box and the buyers name is placed on the treasure map. Guests will pick up their boxes when the show closes on June 20th.
