Being an East Coast gal living on the West Coast, I’ll admit that most of “middle America” has been “fly-over” for me, with the exception of Chicago. I know people from Minnesota (in fact, more people than I realized!), and once I landed and made my way around town, I started to understand why so many people made it their home. I immedi

After working with Archipod’s inventor Chris Sneesby, the trained architect formed Podzook to bring them to the United States and Canada and have them crafted in Maine out of local, sustainable resources. Along with the locally-sourced wood, a close-by company makes the insulation out of blue jeans. The shi

However, artist Marilyn Henrion is focusing on windows in the metaphorical sense, and how they act as gateways to new worlds and become a connection between spaces. Her 21st solo exhibition opens on September 29 at Noho-M55 Gallery, and is an examination of windows and how they connect inside and out.
