In the month of December I installed a show of MACA art at Dance Exchange. John Borstel, the Humanities Director, invited us to share the work of our group to highlight the MACA/LLDE partnership and celebrate/show what we make. I coordinated collecting, transporting, and installment of my classmates work as part of their open house on December 13th, 7:00-9:00.
