The artist will begin by talking about I’m a Stranger Here a site-specific window installation on view at Mystic Lyon (5017 Lyons) that takes a conceptual approach to addressing questions about community resources and assumptions that “strangers” make about neighborhoods. The artist will then provide a structure, tips and surprises for introverts to access when they need to discuss art and other topics.
