the music of the city is free
17 hand-written languages, ink on paper
In Audra Wolowiec's recent project, "the music of the city is free," posters proclaiming this sentiment are stacked in the gallery, to be taken freely by visitors. These works are not only multi-sensory, but multivalent, offering the possibility of connecting and drawing meaning broadly, on levels that are both emotional and intellectual, personal and collective.
—Elizabeth Ferrer, curator
