The Imprint of the City, Van Alen Institute Spring 2014 Events Launch
How does the physical and sensory richness of the city shape who we areâ€”for worse or for better?
To launch Van Alen Instituteâ€™s Spring 2014 Events, the Institute and ISSUE Project Room present a fast-paced medley of music, poetry, personal reflections, conversations, and performances by designers, artists, musicians, writers, social scientists, and others exploring the meaning of well-being, and the effects of the city on our minds and bodies.
Doors at 7:00 pm. The celebration continues with drinks following the program.
