EVENT:          The display will reprise and document the original exhibition of works featured Oct. 12 in Marfa by Texas Tech graduate students and alumni. The original display was a pop-up flash gallery within a 26-foot box truck. Two-site specific installations were created for BOX, including “Experience” by Derek Glenn Martin, a candidate for a master’s of fine arts in ceramics. The outside of the truck was coated with a mix of clay. Inside the truck, a 25-foot sculpture framework was filled with real and imagined rejection letters presented by “The Rejection Collective,” which is an artist group formed of Texas Tech School of Art master’s students and alumni.

The exhibition is free and open to the public.

The exhibitions, speakers and related programs at Landmark Arts and the Texas Tech School of Art are made possible, in part, by grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and The CH Foundation.
