What do you get when you cross 10 artists, Pyramid Atlantic & The Washington City Paper?
A Streetbox Named Desire
A Streetbox Named Desire is an innovative urban public art project celebrating the Washington City Paper (WCP) 30th anniversary. WCP collaborated with Pyramid Atlantic to challenge local artists to redesign their old, drab news boxes.
These "objects of desire" will be displayed throughout WCP's distribution area and readers will vote on their favorites. The three most popular boxes will be permanently installed outside the entrance to Crafty Bastards.
The ten artists participating are Annie Albagli, Rebecca Katz, Elizabeth Graeber, Cara Hunt, Gretchen Schermerhorn, Maggie Michael, Marty Ittner and Ellen Smyth, Franc Rosario, Adam Griffiths, and Sabeth Jackson.
Silver Spring Patch readers can see all the boxes before anyone else does this Saturday, on June 18th at the Fenton Street Market from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Come and have your picture taken with one of these desirable works of art!
