LUX ART INSTITUTE THE VALISE PROJECT

The Valise Project
While preparing to open its new space, Lux Art Institute is encouraging visual literacy and arts appreciation through an educational outreach program that brings museum-quality art to students in their classrooms. Inspired by the twentieth century French artist, Marcel Duchamp who made miniatures of his work and carried them in his briefcase to share with others Lux Art Institute created The Valise Project. Lux commissions artists to create works of art that are housed in a portable case, so that they can be carried into local classrooms and shared with students and teachers. A Lux teacher visits the classrooms with a valise, and gives a ninety-minute presentation that begins with a discussion of the valise and culminates with a supplementary hands-on art activity. The program gives students a complete art experience; from seeing, discussing and touching a work of art, to conceiving and creating an artwork of their own.
