We want to build a home for artists to create.

We dedicate this space to the creation of art and the cultivation of the artist.

Why Open jar?

RISING BEYOND LIMITS WITH OPEN JAR THINKING: TedTalk by Jeff Whiting

The philosophy behind The Open Jar comes from a study by a group of researchers on fleas: 

  • Researchers took a group of fleas, put them in a jar and closed the lid.

  • The fleas, which have a high capacity to jump, kept hitting the lid of the jar as they jumped.

  • After a few days, the fleas learned the limitation of where the lid was and began jumping just below the height of the lid.

  • A week later, they took off the lid of the jar. The fleas continued to jump at the adjusted height and, although the jar was now open, they never jumped out of the jar.

  • Like those fleas in the OPEN JAR, so do we, as humans (and ARTISTS) often adjust to the limitations others set for us. But in truth, we are limitless.
