Kevin Box – Tri County Technology Center

This Bartlesville grad wasn’t upset when his business folded.

THEN: A young boy living in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, under Frank Lloyd Wright’s only realized skyscraper, the Price Tower. Kevin Box developed a passion for creativity and enrolled in a graphic design class at Tri County Tech. He graduated from Tri County in 1995 and then worked there as a teaching assistant. After he left Oklahoma for New York, he:

  • Studied graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
  • Was the youngest member elected to the National Sculptors Guild in 2004.
  • Was recognized by Southwest Art Magazine as one of the top 21 artists under 31 in the Southwest.

NOW: a professional artist and sculptor in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He is best known for making intricately folded paper forms cast in bronze, aluminum or stainless steel, then finished to recapture the look and lightness of paper.

“I gave up a very successful career in graphic design when I realized I was making landfill trash for a living,” he said. “I wanted to make something more durable.”

The co-owner of Box Studio LLC says all of the studio’s work is 100 percent recyclable, and artists use recycled metal in most of their casting process. The family-owned studio employs more than 100 people directly and indirectly through the sale of artwork.

Kevin’s work is represented in 12 galleries, three museums, more than 20 public art collections and hundreds of private art collections throughout the world, including Ted Turner’s private collection.
