Words like majestic, awe-inspiring and magical come to mind - not as descriptions for the cities themselves, but how some of their most iconic architecture would look as black silhouettes against the bright starry skies of remote places.

Artist’s Atheneum is a reading room installed in the library by Nandita Raman in conjunction with the ICP-Bard/MFA Thesis Exhibition. If you haven’t already, stop in and spend some time enjoying it.
