Gallery Treasury Project, 2012

Treasury Project evolved out of the love of art, design and collecting ephemera. In the spirit of CSAs (community-supported agriculture) adapted for artists and designers, Kelly Lynn Jones and I co-created a project that offers both art for arts’ sake and utilitarian function. We strived to cross boundaries within the design and art world, blurring the divisions with an intention of creating a new space for collecting objects.

With Treasury Project, we highlighted how art can exist in all realms within design and fine art. Each edition of 50 within the project was curated as an exhibition within an enclosed structure – a handbuilt box - integral to understanding and interpreting the items within. Each edition was accompanied by a newspaper publication.
