Kate Pocrass plots out "Mundane Journeys" in which unique observations of the city are realized as conceptual bus tours. Ann Chamberlain's work explores how public spaces and places express the identity, history and experience of the communities they serve. Then, go on a walk with Felipe Dulzaides to see his "Double-Take Billboard Project."
