Summer Series



Summer Series is a multi-venue program that showcases short- and long-term projects such as gallery exhibitions, performances, audience participatory work, discussions, research demos, and more. This series encourages collaboration, multidisciplinary approaches, and ideas that foster conversations, relationships, or careers, that represent diverse perspectives.
