Wait, is that a sports thing?
Putting the chicken to good use. Thoughts @rejinl
#FunFact: @ArtBoxNY has dispensed over 600 chick magnets to people all over NY (and beyond!) since it went live a year ago.
Before the Queens Museum closed for the summer, I had to choose whether to move ArtBoxNY to another location, or leave it there to be put in storage. I decided to leave it there and give the project a Summer vacation, so I could build up some inventory before the grand reopening in October.
Now only one week later, a month worth of refills are ready, and I miss my little vending machine. (What was I thinking, giving up access to my favorite project?!)
Maybe this would be a good time to pick up another machine and launch the ArtBox2?
Sadly, @ArtBoxNY will be going into storage while the Queens Museum is closed for renovation this Summer. Be sure to visit before 6/3 to stock up on the fun-sized art! Or buy online here if it’s a chick magnet/mini artist’s book emergency.
We’ll see you in October -with an expanded selection of little books- at the bigger, better Queens Museum. (Click through for more views of the expansion project, as well as info on the museum’s history.)
We stopped by the Queens Museum today and got to check out Rejin Leys’ Art Box project in the lobby. For 50 cents we got a mini-zine!
“Dream Big 2” by Rejin Leys (2013)
This is a 1 inch book that is available in @ArtBoxNY, my vending machine that lives at the Queens Museum. “Dream Big 2” is an unlimited edition relief printed accordion book, and is part of a project that reflects my interest in tchalas, books that give lottery numbers for images you might see in your dreams.
