Safe in a Sonotube

Anyone who’s involved in the art world knows a Sonotube form intimately, for the cylindrical mailing devices are used to send and store everything from sketches to masterpieces. So when the Contemporary Arts Forum asked 35 artists across the world to fill a Sonotube with a piece and send it back with installation instructions, the artists responded with glee. On Saturday, July 14, from 6-8 p.m., CAF is hosting an opening reception for this creative exhibit, and the public is invited to come check out what artists have made out of their special envelopes.
