BOX 13 Collective: Right To Assemble

If you will be in the San Marcos, TX area, please stop by the art galleries at Texas State University and see the new exhibition, BOX 13 Collective: Right To Assemble. Opening is Thursday, 2/9, 5-7pm.  It is an exhibition of only collaborative pieces between Box 13 Art Space members.

I myself being a Box 13 member, made a sculptural piece with members, Karen Brasier Young, Emily Sloan and David McClain. We disassembled an 8-ft diameter sun pinata into 4 pieces, reworked them separately based on parameters that we set, and then reassembled the fractured star in the gallery. My piece is the wall pinata in the image below. Inside McClain’s piece (floor section) is the soundtrack and title to our collaborative piece, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr.’s 1977 hit, You Don’t Have to be a Star Baby
