Opening Reception: Thursday, October 16, 5 to 7 pm
The city has historically proved to be a faithful muse for artists and designers. A microcosm of all that is right and wrong in society, it's a site of inspiration, architectural wonders; but also of conflict and despair. In situ artists and designers Jordan Charles, Taliya Cohen, Alexandra D'Arcy, Min Hyung, & Vanessa Rieger take on the metropolis.
Hours: Wednesday to Saturday 12 to 6 p.m., or by appointment
