The seemingly common term place can relate to an almost infinite variety of associations.
For example, place can relate to a sense of security, impermanence, immigration, pride, social roles, geographic location, and atmosphere.
Place is particularly important to Art Works Downtown because a major function of our public offering is creative place-keeping. By maintaining a 140-year-old building to house and share visual arts, artist studios, low-income housing, retail businesses, and more, Art Works Downtown offers a place for constructive and creative interaction.
You are invited to explore this dynamic group exhibition and to expand your own Sense of Place.
