Much of the role of the curator is one of researcher.  Many hours, months and, often, years go into the compiling of information on the history, context and individuals who together comprise an important cultural moment.  The result of this activity is most commonly presented in the form of exhibitions, publications and programs.  However, the curatorial process is most often kept behind the scenes.

Grab your friends and come for an evening of live music, gallery conversations, art making, snacks and other hands-on activities. Explore the possibilities of making in today’s globalized society, a phenomenon that has highlighted the intersections of arts, design, and craft.
