Artist Jacob Polhill grew up in a world surrounded by the visual excitement of pop culture through social media, video, print, and consumer products. His Kortman Gallery exhibition “Out of the Box,” opening Friday, October 4th, translates the lexicon of street art, contemporary and vintage cartoons, consumerism, and the media into colorful bold art and design in paintings, posters, and 3-D objects.
Buy a “piece” of the art and become part of the art! Artist Nick Cashmere lets you not only own a “share” of his work “Fugitive,” but you also become a participant in the creative process. When you purchase a numbered shard from the smashed up clown figurine featured in the piece, you earn a chance to win the entire work of art! Even if you don’t win the drawing at the end of June, you are forever artistically connected to the other “share” owners! Buy you shard today in the Kortman Gallery! Hear Nick tell about this intriguing art participation concept/contest:
