Map Free City

“Thank you for such a wonderful summer with Map Free City! I had such a fabulous time traveling across the city with you and the other members, analyzing artwork and attending arts events. The Map Free City program absolutely broadened my arts perspective, introducing me to so many new art forms that I can now enjoy. Every day with you was fun and exciting and I enjoyed how we were all pushed out of our comfort zones to discover new favorites (in music, dance, etc.).”
