Wednesday December 4: Open Session / Field Trip

Via Present & Correct

Our agenda this week will depend upon how how our semester, and your interests, evolve. We could add an additional lesson or lab on a topic of your choosing, invite a guest speaker, visit an exhibition, forge our own swords, whatever.  

We’re visiting the Manual Overrride exhibition at The Shed! You’ll find directions here. Let’s meet under the Vessel, the big Shawarma / Honeycomb-like public art installation on Hudson Yards Plaza, before 4:15pm. When you exit the 7 train at Hudson Yards and look south, you’ll see the mall to your left and the Vessel to your right.

Please be on time! We’ll enter the building at 4:15! I will have bought tickets for everyone in advance.

Please read…
