“openBOX” art show A Huge Success

Our “openBOX” art show was hugely successful in connecting the community with art and one another. “openBOX” started with six or seven artists, and finished with as many as 16.

The show featured sculptures, oil paintings, sketches, and international art. The “openBOX”art show served as a perfect demonstration of how vital the vision of “arts for all” in East Calgary is, and how artBOX can open up East Calgary to the greater Calgary art world.

Thank you to all the artists, volunteers, staff, and community members who contributed to making “openBOX” such a great success.
