FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cal State Dominguez Hills To
Carson, Calif. – The 8th International Shoebox Sculpture Exhibition will open on Wednesday, Oct. 6, in the University Art Gallery at California State University, Dominguez Hills (CSUDH). The exhibition will feature 80 sculptures small enough to fit into a shoebox by a roster of well-known international artists. CSUDH hosted the 4th edition of this popular traveling exhibition for the first time in 1992, and is pleased that the 8th edition of the Shoebox Sculpture Exhibition organized by the Art Gallery, University of Hawaii at Manoa, will be on display again.
The Shoebox Sculpture Exhibition provides a glimpse into the breadth of contemporary sculptural expression encompassing a range of media from glass to bronze and a variety of methods from casting and carving to materials being sewn and glued. Although the artist may have created a piece precisely as a small shoe-box scale piece, others may be exploring ideas before they become much larger scale works.
The invited artists
have attained national and international recognition. The United States
by Bruce Beasley, Horace Farlowe, Paul McCoy,
John Ruppert, Frank Sheriff and Esther Shimazu. Japan’s Kazuo Kadonaga
and Chile’s Victor Ruiz Santiago are included. Other artists represent
Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Croatia, Cuba, the Czech Republic,
Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Peru, The Netherlands, Republic
