In this living room art production, local and international artists work together to transform a historical Near Northside home by interpreting the phrase, Crossing the Lines, as it relates to art, politics, and social issues. Addressing how humans traverse, avoid, or manipulate the borders and barriers we create for ourselves, these artists seek to compel audiences out of their comfort zones to trigger an exploration of how boundaries shape our physical spaces and our socio-political identities. Please bring your family and join us for an afternoon filled with art, community, food and Saint Arnold's beer!
