 We always expect something of value to come in a box, but what if the box was empty yet contained something symbolic with a positive, challenging or inspiring message. The boxes were an experiment in an effort to provoke thought and ask people to reconsider their ability to influence change. I wanted to create dialogue, so I started sending seemingly empty painted boxes to anyone. They've traveled the globe, became a teaching tool in classrooms, entered galleries, museums, libraries and even lit up the iconic LED screens of Times Square, The main idea behind the project was to promote peace while making art accessible to people from all walks of life. Join us to learn more about Peace Boxes and create your own.
