The Geo-Co-Lab includes chalkboards hung alongside Skinner’s sculptures and work he is creating in the gallery. Visitors are invited to draw on chalkboards in response to the art as a social, performative and participatory component. Skinner is also creating a Wisdom Tent as a space for contemplation and reflection. The artist will give a talk on Sunday, Jan., 22 at 3 p.m. See
