DISCOVER + DISRUPT is a renewed call to balance in the way art functions in a city. Through the art-forward exploration of their own bodies of work, Electric Coffin envisions a world where humanity’s desire for beauty and exploration are met, balancing functional city systems with unexpected moments of whimsy and delight. The exhibit will be in  the gallery through August 31st.
