Prepare for this sneak preview of Pulitzer Finalist Kristina Wong’s newest work-in-process!

In the new show, she will be creatively intervene with the food bank as:

• An Immersive Experience,
• A functional food bank,
• A commentary on systems and distribution,
• A treatise on food insecurity,
• An illustration of how AI will impact humans, particularly those working in the arts.
