Small School presents Karl Burkheimer Artist Tour
Join Karl Burkheimer for an artist-led tour through the galleries. Learn what inspires him as he looks at the work of other artists from across the ages and how this translates in his practice. This program is produced in partnership with Small School, “bringing people together to engage with all forms of art practice as a way of thinking about our society, culture, environment, and economy.”
