Operation Art Box
We put out a call to local artists, asking them to show us how they’d redesign an Alibi distribution box. We were subsequently showered with submissions, and we spent weeks poring over drawings, sketches, digital renderings, and mad ramblings in letters and emails. Notions of every sort sloshed across our desks, fresh from the minds of our city’s creative geniuses.
We appreciate the hard work of everyone who submitted. The project was so successful that we’ll be doing it again, so hang on to your unrealized ideas. The boxes we chose are planted along the Central corridor, and we’re making a box-by-box podcast tour with more detailed information about each artist and their creation. Watch for it on alibi.com. Hugs and high fives to the first wave of Alibi box designers!
They did it for love, but we’re going to give them some prizes anyway. The Alibi thanks these generous local businesses for supplying the artists with gift certificates: Waco’s Tacos, Al’s Big Dipper, Bailey’s on the Beach, Rasoi, Chillz Frozen Custard and The Talking Fountain.
