      In 1999, Gallery Route One gave wooden boxes to local artists to create anything they wished. Twenty years later, THE BOX SHOW™ is more popular than ever, annually drawing thousands of people to this major gallery event in the rural West Marin town of Point Reyes Station.

      For THE BOX SHOW™, Gallery Route One distributes 150 identically sized wooden boxes to 150 artists and aspiring community members, all eager to interpret their art within this unique three-dimensional canvas. Two months later, an incredibly diverse exhibit of artwork is on view at the gallery for seven weeks. Silent bidding for the boxes occurs throughout the show, then ultimately culminates in the dynamic live auction.

      THE BOX SHOW™ is not only a remarkable opportunity for artists to flex their creativity in their chosen medium and beyond; it is also a fundraiser for Gallery Route One’s outreach programs: the Latino Photography Project, the Artists in the Schools Program, as well as the social justice exhibit series, Earth: Arts and the Environment.

      There is something for everyone to enjoy at THE BOX SHOW™. See the amazingly inventive and transformative ways that art has been created when starting with a plain wooden box. A San Francisco Bay Area tradition, THE BOX SHOW™ is not to be missed!
