The Museum of Arts and Design has a great exhibition called Slash, paper under the knife, featuring about 50 artist that have been commissioned to create on site specific installations and pieces. Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to sneak in a photo, so you would have to actually 'go there' to experience the work.
