ShoeboxLA is the brainchild of artists Sophia Allison and Paul W. Evans, both of whom arrived in Los Angeles nearly 9 years ago.  How small can a gallery be to function?  Can a gallery sustain itself with no real location?  Will artists be up to the challenge?  And finally, will people come? 
With initial guidelines that all art would be made specifically for the gallery and work produced would not be miniature, but “appropriate for the gallery’s size”, the two decided their gallery would measure a mere 24”x18”x8”.  Instead of having one location with hours, the gallery would arrive at different locations around Los Angeles.
