Don Colley, Mano/Mundo/Corazon, 2010
Edition of 20
Chicago-based artist Don Colley created this limited edition print at Anchor Graphics, on the occasion of Mano/Mundo/Corazón: Artists Interpret La Lotería.
Pandora’s Box, created in 2003, was the first epicenter publication. 50 artists were invited to consider the them of Pandora’s box in a thoughtful and inventive way. Each artist created 150 prints or multiples, which were assembled into wooden lacquered poplar boxes, made of Arizona Wood Craft Specialty. Each box measures 17 x 7.5 x 5.25 inches and are finished in black stain and clear lacquer with a recessed hinged lid. The prints measure 6 x 16 inches and numbered by the artists.
Anita Leverence, Audrey Niffenegger, Shawn Sheehy and Stacey Stern developed the concept and design for Pandora’s Box.
