The VCS 2011 open studios

Today’s post features images from last year’s VCS open studios event, which was held on April 28th in the 2011 senior studios at 136 West 21st Street and the older VCS studio space at 133 West 21st Street.

Later this week, I will return with a post featuring closer views of some of the works in these photos, along with other student art from the event.
