Much of the class has been spent wrapping our heads around the idea of historic preservation and what it means to the city, so today we spent time focusing on the other big part of our project - art! Today we walked up to the plaza level of Riverside Plaza and drew. It was great to be up there taking a look at the architecture and allowing the students some time to work on technical element of their drawing. We talked a little about Rapson's utopian vision and whether it actually works. One student, Kosar, lives in the complex, so it was fantastic to get her perspective on how people use the public space.
