Thursday, November 15th, 2012. (Doors Open at 6:30/ Live Auction at 7:30pm)

240 Elm Street, Somerville, MA

For one night only Massachusetts College of Art and Design will be exhibiting and auctioning artworks curated by jurors Camilo Alvarez (Owner/Director/Preparator, Samsøn Gallery, Boston), Dina Deitsch (Associate Curator, deCordova Sculpture Park + Museum, Lincoln) and Kanishka Raja (NYC based artist and assistant Professor at MassArt) 

The name of the event (‘Night in the Box’) refers to the punishment which befalls the title character of the novel (1966) and film (1967) Cool Hand Luke, made famous by Paul Newman as the ultimate anti-establishment anti-hero, whose infringement of prison rules lands him a dreaded “night in the box.”

The event will be held in 10,000 square feet of rawspace (‘the Box’) on the site of the former premises of the Social Security Administration in Somerville, MA, and feature DJs and VJs, food and drink donated by local restaurants, and an exhibition and auction of artwork by 74artists. 

The exhibition and auction will provide valuable exposure and income (up to 50% of the auction proceeds) for MassArt students, alumni and friends as well as a new source of support for MassArt’s graduate scholarships. 100% of MassArt’s proceeds will benefit graduate scholarships. 

Tickets are are available online (General public: $50 / MassArt students: $25)
