CUNY Art Tour Gowanus: Studio Visit with Katrina Majkut.

This Spring (READ)art’s Heather Zises led CUNY College of Staten Island art students and their Professor Beatrix Reinhardt for an art tour of Gowanus. Over the course of three hours, we visited four different Gowanus artists in their studios to learn more about their art and practice, career opportunities for emerging artists, and the benefits of pursuing graduate school or residency programs.

A big thanks to CUNY, Beatrix Reinhardt, and the participating artists: Johanna Evans-Colley, Katrina Majkut, Miska Draskoczy, and Rachel Schmidhofer!
