About BlackBox Foundation

BlackBox Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in Casa Grande, Arizona focused on arts production, education, and advocacy.

BlackBox Foundation was formed in April 2012 to support the continuing efforts of community members with a history of producing, performing, and educating in Casa Grande and the surrounding areas.

Our goals as an organization are three-fold:

  • To produce quality arts events.
  • To support arts education for all age levels.
  • To be an advocate for the arts in our community.

A quote that sums up our thinking about the arts in Pinal county is:

“Rural arts are different from urban arts, but in unexpected ways. We often are predisposed to think that rural arts are smaller-scale versions of arts activities in larger towns and cities, or that they are not professional in a mainstream sense. But in fact rural arts have a richness and complexity congruent with anything seen in larger centres, and have distinct characteristics that arise precisely because these activities happen in particular rural or community settings.”
