Both exhibits are the vision of Patrica Miranda, and both engage the viewer in contemplating humanity's impact on our environment. And, in our satellite spaces - new art comes to Coldwell Banker mid-month, and we'll host an opening celebration on January 30th, from 5:30-7:30pm. We also add a new satellite space to our line-up - the original Darwin's location on Mount Auburn Street!
