The art lab is KAC's experimental gallery space. You will often see it change dramatically when you visit. It was painted lavender for 2019 exhibitions Resiliency and the 2019 Members' Exhibition: Resiliency (shown above). Photography by Jordon Makela.
Artist Norwood Vivano combined glass blowing, population shift data, and vinyl in the art lab during his exhibition: Manufacturing Cities in summer 2019.
Ongoing Matter transformed the art lab into an experimental graphic design exhibition. Black walls were the background to protest-inspired posters that provided a visual narrative to the Muller Report, Part 1. Photography by Jordon Makela.
