Byrdcliffe in a Box is our initiative to support our creative community from afar. Since we cannot be physically near one another at this time we have designed an artist’s care package – a compact version of our artist residency to be carried from Byrdcliffe’s mountain utopia to your doorsteps.
Part time-capsule, part game, each box is a selection of five unique items that have emanated from Byrdcliffe – bits of Byrdcliffe history, art, & natural environment. Each package includes 36 prompting cards that shape the box into a companion to your studio practice, an invitation for creative exploration, and/or reminders of poetry, however you choose to engage. Together, we hope these things will provide new material to continue your studio practice from home with a dash of our mountain utopia in the mix.
Special thanks to AiR Alumnus Rebecca Nison for her insight on this project.
We hope each box presents a multitude of possibilities & unexpected outcomes, and are excited to see how these pieces are transformed in the hands of our creative community. Keep in touch with Byrdcliffe and your fellow creatives by tagging #byrdcliffeinabox – we truly can’t wait to see & share your creations.
Please note that we are no longer taking orders. Thanks to everyone who supported the project!
