Office Hours: Joe Segal on New Wonder of the World
Contemporary Art Gallery
Part of Locally Made’s One Room.
During Office Hours, artists, designers, experts, and brainiacs take the doors off of their offices and studios. Stop by for conversation or advice.
I will be finishing sweaters, stuffing pillows, uploading new work to www.prettysnake.com and signing autographs. Come say hi! —Joseph Segal
