Spring 2023 Art Crawl Recap

On Wednesday, April 26, guests of the Art Crawl experienced an exciting and diverse array of art and collections: the aesthetic beauty of woven Japanese bamboo baskets; artwork created by SBU students; selections from a collection of rare Chinese cookbooks; and artistic productions exploring aspects of the Klein bottle, a mathematical object that still offers secrets to reveal.
