Bigger doesn't always mean better.
Before your mind goes into the gutter, we're talking about housing. Tiny spaces, to be exact. "Microdwellings," to be most specific.
"MicroDwell 2014" comes to Shemer Art Center this week for a month-long hands-on look on how 600 square feet translates into a usable live-work environment. The showcase, which runs from Saturday, February 15, through Sunday, March 23, is the second installation of the event. Ten local artists, architects, and amateurs have designed and built these small studios, creating pieces that are fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing.
