There are five upcoming exhibitions -- three visual, two audio -- all opening on Friday, September 29th, that we are ecstatic for everyone to see!

Our permanent audio installations will house two new upcoming sound art offerings this fall. The F*cking Reticence will be our third Poem Booth rotation and one of the writers from this year’s Prism Commission, Lynnée Denise, is bringing Lynnée Denise presents Case Studies in DJ Scholarship: Folk, Funk, and Toni from Ohio to Elevator Music.
