FGCU Opens "Out of the Box: Art from the Inside Out," Reception March 19
3/13/2009

FORT MYERS, FL - The Art Gallery at Florida Gulf Coast University invites the public to an opening reception of "Out of the Box: Art from the Inside Out," 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 19 in the FGCU Library Gallery. The exhibition runs through April 24.

The exhibition showcases 48 artists' work on how they turned a recycled jewelry case into a work of art. "Leaving each artist to their own imagination, with the only common denominator of asking how they could put the jewelry case into useful service again, was surprising and delightful," said curator of the exhibition Paige Wideman. "The works on view are as varied as the contributing artists themselves."

The Art Gallery is located inside the Arts Complex on FGCU's main campus. The University is located off Ben Hill Griffin Parkway, east of I-75 and between exits 123 and 128. Parking is available in Lot 7 for gallery visitors; parking passes are available at the parking kiosk at the University's entrance.

For further information contact interim director of the Art Gallery at FGCU Anica Sturdivant at (239) 590-7199 or asturdiv@fgcu.edu
