October 19 Closing Reception

This Sunday, October 19, 2014 marks the closing of StoreFrontLab's first show in the City Making series. Ilyse Iris Magy's Lines Made by Walking and Miguel Arzabe's Sightlines extended the bounds of the StoreFrontLab gallery by leading visitors to the city's edge and the greater Bay Area. 

Both Magy and Arzabe's ever-evolving gallery installations chart the progression of these walks. The artists tell two very different city narratives, each through a unique language of mapping.

Please join us as we take a final look at how these two artists have charted our city.
