The Future of Art: Art in the 21st Century
January 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10
As we look forward into the 21st century, we ask ourselves—what will art look like in future generations? How will it be produced? How will it be appreciated? How will it be valued? How is the convergence of art and technology redefining what art is? Join MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest on January 16, 2019 as we explore these questions with some of the most innovative artists in our community. Featuring presentations and a panel discussion with:
