Sometimes you wander into an art gallery and find creativity so intense and fun that you just watch in awe. Not long ago at the Sharon Arts Center in downtown Peterborough, New Hampshire (about seven miles from Yankee’s offices), we found the place abuzz with dozens of local schoolchildren awash in this intangible process we call genius. Under the tutelage of Connecticut artist James Grashow, the group turned pounds of cut-up cardboard into a walk-through aquarium. On his Web site, Grashow writes: “I am convinced there is a link between corrugated cardboard and creativity…. Rescued from trash, it asks only, ‘What do you want me to be?’ Corrugated board is the DNA of creativity. Boxes, glue, tape, knives, and a group of willing people can create anything. And have a great time doing it.”
