A talented team of Minneapolis Designers, Artists and Craftsmen lead by IAKeer created this unique Gallery Donation Box for the Somerset Art Association (SAA), in Bedminster New Jersey.
In the spirit of giving, the design and artist team along with select material manufacturers and distributors generously donated their valued time, expertise, products and materials to build this exciting project over a 3-year journey.
Designed by IAKeer, the creative concept is about the art journey. The vessel represents the institution of art and the journey is the symbolic creation of art made possible through the free-spirited artist. Both the vessel and the journey are financially supported by the community in which they participate.
The free-form Sail represents the artists and the power of the creative process; the House-Boat represents the institutions which house the art; and the Base Cabinet with reference to paper and coin currency, is symbolic of public donations which fuel the artistic journey.
Public donations are collected in side slots within the base cabinet and used to support the artistic programs and endeavors of SSA.
Custom Furniture Commission and Donation: One-of-a-kind.
