Trailer Box Project seeks participants to create hybrid monsters
“Chimera” Opening Reception at 5:00pm on Saturday, March 19th
Danbury, CT – Trailer Box Project will introduce “Chimera,” a new interactive solo exhibition
by Bethel artist Honorah O’Neill. The handsome exhibit, featuring life sized creatures with mix
and match parts, begins with an opening reception at 5:00pm on Saturday, March 19th, and will
run through March 26th.
“As an artist, Honorah O’Neill often utilizes her anthropological background to bring fables and
folktales to life,” says Dana Walker, Director of Trailer Box Project. “For her upcoming
installation, O’Neill has harnessed the mythological Chimera of ancient Greece, a monstrous
creature composed of the parts of more than one animal. Combined with her love for the natural
world and a wry wit, the resulting sculptures are playful and humorous.”
Honorah O’Neill, a painter and sculptor, studied at Ohio Wesleyan University and earned her
degree in anthropology. The owner of the Bethel Rainy Day Paperback Exchange bookstore,
O’Neill has exhibited her works throughout Connecticut and has amassed a following in the
greater Danbury area. Her installation for Trailer Box Project will include animals such as a
Bernese Mountain Dog, giant anteater and velociraptor dressed in a variety of costumes, from
Girl Scout to doctor. Each creature is made up of separate parts that can be switched with other
animals to make all new, imaginative hybrids.
Trailer Box Project, a project space and gallery in Danbury, Connecticut is dedicated to assisting
groundbreaking artists in sharing their concepts with the public.
Members of the general public are invited to attend the opening reception on Saturday, March
19th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Trailer Box Project, 15 Great Pasture Rd, Unit 15 in Danbury.
Operating hours for the exhibition are Thursday through Saturday, from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, or
