The Arts District Box Project

The Arts District Box Project highlights the colorful, urban community situated in the city center along Washington Avenue.  The District includes creative businesses, restaurants, artist studios, reimagined industrial building, historic architecture and is home to the highest concentration of working artists in the state.  Twenty-four artists were selected to create boxes around the theme of affordable studio space using discarded material as a way to collect surveys from visitors at 24 locations within the district.

All 24 boxes are currently on view at the Train Shed at Art Alley.
