New York curator to discuss living, sensory elements in art

Eden Powell won’t forget seeing “real spaces where people create in the New York art world,” which she experienced last March on a field trip with her “Spring Break in New York” ART 408 class. The visit included a stop at SculptureCenter, which exposed the students to “a really current, cutting edge art scene [in] a multidimensional and dynamic space,” said Powell, an undergraduate art student.
