The Paper Sculpture Show

Exhibition Through April 18, 2004

Lively, unconventional and totally interactive, The Paper Sculpture Show boldly explores the nature of the art object and the identity of the artist. Twenty-nine international artists have contributed to this exhibition by submitting a design for a three-dimensional paper sculpture that is only complete once it has been assembled by museum visitors. Work tables designed by Allan Wexler and tools such as tape, glue and scissors made available in the galleries allows for visitors to use in the creation of their own "paper sculptures."
