Visualaries: A 30th Anniversary Showcase of Select Media Artists at Media Arts Gallery & Stacks Reading and Artist Talk
Depending on where you live, a visit to DUMBO might be anywhere from an easy subway ride to an epic mass transit commute. For those in the latter camp, we’re making your journey *extra* worth it with two great – and free!-events on February 4 in collaboration with Dumbo’s First Thursday Gallery Walk.
