Over 7,000 people come to see THE BOX SHOW™ at Gallery Route One.

THE BOX SHOW™ is a celebration of art making, community and the magic that begins with a plain wooden box.

In 1999, Gallery Route One gave wood boxes to the artists to create anything they wished.  Nineteen years later THE BOX SHOW™ is more popular than ever!

For THE BOX SHOW™, Gallery Route One distributes 150 identically sized wooden boxes to 150 people, some noted artists and some just regular people in the community eager to let their art flags fly.  Roughly two months later, each Box Artist’s work of art goes on display at the gallery for seven weeks.  Silent bidding for the boxes occurs throughout the exhibition, culminating in the dynamic live auction, this year being held on Sunday, September 30.


The live auction on September 30th is the culmination of the Box Show, GRO’s premier fundraising event of the year.

This highlights GRO’s mission in a way that is unique and important. While supporting its local concerns—along with its artist members who have found a sense of community outside of the major urban, artistic centers—GRO is outward facing, its ears tuned into the national and global conversations around art, the environment, politics and humanitarianism so as to invite them into the local discourse.

Operating on a minimal budget and countless volunteer hours from its members, it deserves our support. 


THE BOX SHOW™ helps to support Gallery Route One’s other outreach programs:

  • the Artists in the Schools Program; a multi-disciplinary program for students in West Marin public schools combining art making and creative writing with the classroom science curriculum
  • the Latino Photography Project; offers photography instruction for Latino adults
  • With the Earth: Arts and the Environment and our Social Justice exhibits; Project Space exhibitions focused around themes of environmental issues, social justice issues and diaspora and immigration

Don’t miss THE BOX SHOW™!
