Next Up: July 31 – August 6 Addressing Perception Artists: Peter Schmitz, Kathy Couch, Sasha Statmen-Weil This project addresses perception. The public is invited to bring their perceptions into the space that the artists’ perception is creating. The public may give form and parameter to their experience with the curtains that surround this space, which are available to help shape their literal vision. With them, the public is in charge of their own framing and vantage; you, the public determines what you see.
