Making Space, Preserving Place: Conversation at the Intersection of Art, Community and Preservation

Wednesday, May 15
6pm to 8pm
Elisabet Ney Museum, 304 E 44th Street

Space has enormous power to bring people together or keep them apart. What role can historic places and space play in providing spaces for making and exhibiting art? How can we honor the role of history and legacy communities as the use of spaces and places changes in Austin? How can new types of spaces and places for art develop?
