It’s almost here! Our exhibition at the Craft & Folk Art Museum opens at the end of the month and we hope you’ll join us. We’ve been working hard on a diverse body of work for this show, incorporating locally sourced wood from the massive storm that felled many trees throughout Los Angeles in 2011.
Windfall features new furniture and functional objects from members of the Los Angeles-based Box Collective, a group of designer-makers dedicated to creating innovative objects from reclaimed and sustainably sourced wood. The works in the exhibition were fabricated from trees that fell in northeastern Los Angeles during the historic windstorm of 2011. Ten members of the group will have works on display: Robert Apodaca, Casey Dzierlenga, Harold Greene, David Johnson, RH Lee & JD Sassaman, Samuel Moyer, Andrew Riiska, Stephan Roggenbuck, Cliff Spencer, and William Stranger.
The opening reception for Windfall by Box Collective takes place on May 28, 2016 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. The reception is free for CAFAM members and open to the public for a $12 entry fee.
