What is art, and why does it matter?

A Collaborative Spirit

April 19, 2013
This past Friday, I went to view XS Collaborative’s opening exhibition, a series of three converted New Haven storefronts on College Street. XS Collaborative is a mixture of graduate students drawn from the School of Art, Music, Architecture, Forestry, and more. According to their mission statement on their Facebook page, XS views themselves as an “inter-disciplinary collaborative student group that seeks to open up siloed knowledge and production at Yale.” After seeing how XS publically engaged with Friday’s events on their Facebook page, I would urge XS to extend their collaborative spirit to everyone in the greater New Haven community.
