Millard Sheets Center for the Arts

Art Out of the Box

Under the direction of curator Tony Sheets, son of gallery namesake, The Millard Sheets Center for the Arts at Fairplex took on an ambitious art project with its exhibit The Making of Art: The First 30,000 Years. Adding to the creative atmosphere was Watch Art Happen, a community art assignment where teams of artists created works before the watchful eyes of Fairguests. The public and visiting schools also had the opportunity to participate in hands-on art projects or imagine scenes in their head based on the words of storyteller Jim Coogan.
