“Thinking Beyond the Blue Box Art Show & Sale” Continues at the Capitol Theatre Until August 26

In Community, Local

As a result of Thinking Beyond the Blue Box Art Show & Sale, nearly half a tonne of waste has been diverted from the landfill, and transformed into over 130 new imaginative artworks!

There are 3 gallery locations throughout the main floor of the Capitol to peruse! Artwork is available to purchase for all budgets, ranging from $5.00 to $4,000, with lots of accessible price points in between!

The community response to this project and the creativity was inspiring. There is something here for everyone.

Bring a friend or your family to the show and support local artists in your community. August is Arts Month in Port Hope.

Proceeds from the sales of this show will be split 50/50 with the artists and the organizers (Critical Mass and Beyond the Blue Box).

Exhibition Dates:
Saturday, August 12th to Saturday, August 26th

WHEN & HOW to Purchase Items from the Show:
