Have you been wanting to think outside of the box? Then perhaps you may want to consider thinking inside of the box!
Assemblage artists from around the world are invited to request a cigar box from the IMCAC and to create a work of art using the box received. When complete the box is donated to the IMCAC and used in future exhibitions. This could be an interesting event.
