“We are planning a wonderful event for one week before Fathers’ Day, featuring national and local artists,” said Volunteer Chair Ann Nelson, who notes that 15 museum volunteers have spent the past two years planning and organizing the popular event. “The community of Jackson Hole anticipates Out of the Box with great enthusiasm; this show will have something for everyone.”
The theme of the boxes—each a unique works of functional art—is not limited to wildlife for the event, and artists are invited to work in any medium as long as the work retains its function as a box. The box artworks will be auctioned by auctioneer Jim Loose, and the evening’s M.C. is KMTN’s “Fish.”
Special door prizes for the event will include two CityPass books to the city of the winner’s choice (excluding Southern California), a two-hour art appraisal by Art Appraisals of Jackson Hole, LLC, two beautiful bird-themed notions boxes, and a tour of the newly opened Jackson Hole Raptor Center with guide Roger Smith.
