Description

‘Outside the Box’ builds a map of design in North America.

This third annual travelling exhibition features the work of over 70 designers from 11 cities across Canada and the U.S. Curated by local correspondents, each Bankers box houses a collection of thoughtfully designed objects, reflecting the particular resources and makers of that area.

Asheville

Find respite on the trails of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Sample local grub on handcrafted platters.
Break boundaries with the latest music technology.

The works selected for ‘Outside the Box’ are as much a reflection of Asheville’s burgeoning designer-maker culture as they are tools to discover the natural beauty, heritage, and innovation of the city.
