Intersection of Artist, Architect… – CANCELLED

Not everyone loves to spend their free time in museums, tromping from gallery to gallery. Nor does everyone have the desire to engage in the arts.  For that reason it is wonderful that there are amazing places right out in public view to enjoy the art of design, sculpture and the decorative arts simply by passing by.  One can be in a subway, walking on the street or in an elevator – just to mention a few venues. This is an expanded course that had its beginnings in murals.  Come join the interactive and lively discussions about where, and what type of, art exists right out in the open for all to enjoy.
