Wednesday, April 5: 11:15 a.m. with Mary Lambrakos, Lambrakos Studio "The Intersection of Art and Design"

Join Mary Lambrakos of Lambrakos Studio for an engaging conversation on the intrinsic symbiosis of art and interior design. Mary will share her unique perspective on how uniting art and design forges unforgettable environments that speak to a compelling narrative. Expanding on how the installation of a piece by Carlos Cruz-Diez transformed the entry of her most recent project into an ever-changing tapestry of light, Mary will explore the power of art and its ability to create immersive experiences. Whether you’re an art enthusiast or a seasoned interior designer, this promises to be a stimulating exploration of the varied ways art informs design and shapes our experience of home.
