Saturday, Feb. 9th - Sunday, Mar. 31st
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Sunday: 1-5PM

Visit the gallery for the Cages / Logging exhibit – which composes two parallel narratives that explore the processes by which nature becomes a material space charged with intellectual emotion. From the exploration that compels us to search for the natural sources that will provide us with our building materials, to the actual manufacturing of the skin that protects us from that same environment, Cages / Logging offers a unique vision of the privilege and responsibility that we have in the design of our spaces.
