Inaugural show of Philadelphia's latest exhibition space in Old City is on view May, June and July 2016. Curated by Center For the Emerging Visual Artist, Art Box is visible 24/7 on the north side of Market just east of 3rd St.

Now swimming in deep blue the La Mer installation offers a window into the sea that appears simultaneously immersed in the life of the city. With shifting light, people and activity on the street, the exhibit changes with each hour and visit.

La Mer explores life of the ocean from the bioluminescent creatures of the abyss to the exquisite and mighty microscopic beauties in the sunlit zone. These single cells photosynthesize most of earth’s oxygen sustaining all life as the base of our food chain and ecosystem. The intricate ceramic forms shine light on the wonder as well as the delicate, diverse and mostly unseen, little known life of the sea with which our lives are intrinsically linked.
People protect what they love. – Jacques Yves Cousteau
