Art-in-a-Box show opens Oct. 1

When Todd Cashbaugh told art and design alumni about the Oct. 1 exhibition in the Jean Paul Slusser Gallery, he specified that the submitted work must be no larger than 12.5 x 11 x 1.5 inches because ‘that box is what your artwork must arrive in.’ The alumni show will be on display in the gallery through Oct. 15. ‘See what happens when people who think outside the box make their work fit inside one,’ Cashbaugh says.
