Art Opening: Stairs with artist Janet Van Fleet
My husband RD Eno and I have just come back from 6 weeks in New Orleans, where I took a lot of photographs of the fronts of houses and paired them with objects I found. Stairs are literally and metaphorically a transition from the outside to the inside, from the public to the private, so there's a lot going on there! The show runs from May 23 to July 16.
7 p.m. Reading with RD Eno
