The Fourth Annual Altoids Curiously Strong Collection
January 10 - February 8, 2003
Opening Reception: Friday, January 10, 2003, 6:00 – 8:00pm
Started in 1998, the Altoids Curiously Strong Collection of contemporary art is a showcase for some of the most talented emerging visual artists working in America today. The Collection is comprised of works in all media, including photography, video, mixed media, sculpture, painting, and digital art. Each year, Altoids engages the expertise of a selection committee comprised of prominent artists, critics, curators and gallerists and challenges them to select artists who represent some of the most “curious,” “strong” and “original” artwork being created today. Only emerging visual artists working in America are eligible for the collection, and no piece of submitted artwork may exceed $2,500 in value. The traveling exhibition is comprised of the twenty pieces, chosen from a pool of one hundred nominated works.
