Habatat Showing StreetKraft

  • August 18 – September 15, 2018
  • International roster of artists who have created colorful, ambitious, vibrant pieces that address urban signage, the fate of cities, mundane detritus, and urban decay. The artists wander, wonder, and use glass to translate their sometimes humorous, sometimes deadly serious, interpretations of the street, and the assembled exhibition is playful, potent, political, and provoking.
