Last month, Scion called upon seven dynamic contemporary and internationally recognized artists to create original artwork inspired by and in celebration of the all new 2008 xB urban utility vehicle. The artwork will be displayed at Want2BSquare art shows in New York and Los Angeles, and carry the theme of squares, boxes and cubes to follow the xB's boxy style.

Each artist was asked to paint on canvases of two square sizes, 48" x 48" and 24" x 24", which were then assembled into cubes that will be suspended from the ceiling at various heights throughout the gallery. Smaller cubes will display the artwork on the outside, while the larger cubes will show artwork on the inside enabling the viewer to gaze up into the artwork from directly beneath the box.

1500 people turned out for the NYC show. DJ sets from Cosmo Baker and DJ Eleven. Everyone enjoyed the open bar and the interactive art. The LA version of the show comes to Culver City on April 21st.
