Put on by Center for Architecture & Design
Meet at the Center for a curatorial tour of Sanctuary: Design for Belonging by CFAD's Graphic Art Curator, Cleo Barnett. During this hour-long tour, Cleo will discuss the overall theme of the exhibit, explaining the competition winners’ projects and how they make cities more welcoming to immigrants and refugees. Cleo will also walk through the design and social innovation behind protest posters, discussing in-depth the behind-the-scenes process of how some of the artwork featured in this exhibition artwork came to be, the way the artwork lives in the world, and the power within public art to shift culture.
Exhibits and tours are free and open to the public
