“Mystery Box Art Challenge 2” Gallery and Virtual Exhibition 2022

Exhibition Description:

After the wild success of the inaugural Mystery Box Art Challenge, we are gearing up for a new instalment! Participants will find all new art materials inside the box, plus all new and bigger art prizes!

The Mystery Box Art Challenge 2 (2022) is a creative opportunity for local artists. These artists will receive a box of collage, art, and unexpected materials. The challenge: Use at least a little bit of each material (box included) in the creation of an original artwork. Artists will have 8 weeks to make their art. During the creation time, artists will be invited to engage with their fellow artists in virtual meets, as well as share their project’s progress online.

The artists may combine the mystery materials into a sculpture, add them to a canvas, or whatever their imaginations can conceive. Most importantly, artists are encouraged to have fun, make art, innovate, and present their Mystery Box Art Challenge artwork in the Multicultural Heritage Centre Public Art Gallery exhibition and virtually in 2022.

The Mystery Box Art Challenge is organized and curated by Alexis Marie Chute, Art Gallery curator at the Multicultural Heritage Centre.
