Staff and youth from The Future Project http://www.thefutureproject.org/ joined E. Slomba Arts Interstices for the program “Opening Your Curatorial Eye” (see Juicy Programs tab!) at City Wide Open Studios, an annual event produced by Art Space Gallery http://cwos.org/. The Future Project helps local teens discover their passions and turn them into projects. Dedicated staff members are called Dream Directors.
A former Erector Set factory known as Erector Square http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erector_Square houses the personal studios of hundreds of local artists in New Haven, Connecticut. This high-density of creators made it an especially exciting place to be during City Wide Open Studios.
Participating teens visited the studios, met with artists and selected works for an upcoming exhibit, Navigate Complexity, to open at The Grove on November 18, 2013.
