Paige Davis and Bird Ross are working from Burnsville, NC and Madison, WI respectively in partnership toward an art piece for Bartram’s Boxes Remix Challenge VIII. This Challenge is a collaborative project between The Center for Wood in Art and Bartram’s Garden, Philadelphia (home of famed 18th century explorer and botanist John Bartram). The title of this project, Bartram’s Boxes Remix, references the boxes containing seeds, plants, and curiosities that John Bartram began sending to his colleagues in England in 1735, making Bartram’s Garden an international hub of plant knowledge and sharing.
The Challenge will culminate in an exhibition in Philadelphia in February 2014 with a total of 32 different pieces being developed by 44 artists over the next year.
