Join us for the opening events of Wall to Wall II: Working Together (W2W2),vcurated by Karl Stephan and Bianca Broxton.
A reprise of 2016’s successful “Wall to Wall: Art Builds Community,” Wall to Wall Two (W2W2) explores how working together in artistic collaboration can be a model for bridging differences among individuals and communities. W2W2 features collaborative studio, community and street art from diverse local, national and international artists.
