TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Two Florida State University art professors wanted art to be for everyone, so they created a mobile art collective.

It's called "Commabox," and it aims to make art more obtainable for everyone.

Through Commabox, artists create boxes about the size of a priority shipping box, full of objects that are small enough to be viewed anywhere.

"It creates communities. It brings people together to talk about contemporary art ideas that are also ideas that are important in the world," said Judy Rushin, with the FSU department of art.

Volume two is called "Fragments." It contains art from local, nationally and internationally-recognized artists.

"Fragments" launches Saturday.
