UNBOXED is a unique way for our friends and supporters to invest in our new work. HERE’S HOW:
- Each piece of original artwork will be put up for auction by Sandbox and our featured artists
- If sold, the piece continues through the Sandbox creation process as a source image and point of inspiration for the creation of text, movement or character
- THEN, the piece lives on as a PART of the show, serving as gallery installation piece for This Is a World to Live In
- Once the show closes, you take your well-traveled artwork home with a great story to tell
ABOUT OUR FEATURED ARTISTS
BETH LORAINE BOWMAN
Beth is an American painter from Detroit, Michigan. Her paintings and mixed-media artwork have earned her several solo shows and a ton of accolades. Her colorful, evocative style is a perfect fit for a new brand of Pop, and we’re bouncing at the thought of working with her.
Beth has studied in the South of France, holds a slew of art degrees, and is a huge supporter of women in business and the arts. We think you’ll love her.
Crist is a sculptor, painter, producer, and one of those people who can say, “I’d like to try that,” then does it better than just about anyone else. An EMMY-WINNING makeup artist by trade, Crist spent seven years as a makeup artist on the cult television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 and supplied makeup and effects for the 1996 feature film and the spin-off The Mystery Science Theater Hour.
Oh, and he won a FREAKING OSCAR as a part of the makeup team on JJ Abrams’ Star Trek! Dude. An OSCAR.
Kristina is a painter and fiber artist whose style is a unique blend of ethereal beauty and expertly crafted discipline. She was a 2010 recipient of the Jerome Foundation’s Fiber Artist Grant for her work at the Minnesota Textile Center, and her amazing work has garnered her featured status at galleries all over the Twin Cities.
Additionally, Kristina holds a Master of Arts from The College of St. Catherine, and has spent the past seven years performing on Minneapolis stages.
Kristina has also helped create several Sandbox shows and is awesome.
