Come build a
cardboard world at the Asian Art Museum!
The Box Project is a workshop for parents and kids developed by San Francisco artist, Eliza Gregory. Participants alter and play with cardboard
boxes as they would at home, but on an unusually grand scale. Materials include
reused cardboard donated by local businesses, which we recycle at the end of the
day. Professional parenting educator Nancy Gapasin Gnass curates information
about parenting and creativity for participants to take home, and 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
Part of the fun in building this cardboard world is tearing it all down! Come back to Samsung Hall at 4 PM for to partake in a Moment of Destruction!
