Limited Edition Boxers

Limited Edition Boxers

Make a Gift of $350 and you’ll receive a limited-edition artwork by Artist-in-Residence Jonathan Lyndon Chase made in collaboration with FWM. Don’t miss the chance to own one of only 65 boxer shorts based on those in the artist’s exhibition, Big Wash. The boxers feature Chase’s Bending $ag design—a joyous riot of butterflies and roses—printed in a new colorway created exclusively for this edition, titled Spread your wings and prepare to fly. For a limited time (May 25-June 30), they’re available only to FWM contributors of $350 or more. Best of all, your gift supports artistic experimentation and FWM’s collaboration with contemporary artists!
