Back at the entry and teleporter area, you will want to visit the Bauhaus style galleries showcasing poetry, sculptures, paintings, and photography. Also on this level, DB Bailey will be opening a gallery on March 1st so be sure to visit then too.
Another interesting installation is “The Tower” by Rebeca Bashly. This build contains different levels accessed via teleporters in the shape of flowers. As you move through each level, you will be greeted by sculptured human female figures in various states. The sculptures, each with fantastic lighting and beautifully created by Ms. Bashly, will capture your imagination as you try to determine the story being portrayed. Your imagination can take you anywhere, so let it and let it become your story.
