CAMS Seniors are presenting their Comps each followed by a short Q&A as follows:
9:00-9:30 am -- Ashley Shaw on "A Day in Memory" -- What happens if we take the time to listen? How can the way we hear inspire the way we see the world? 'A Day In Memory,' a sonic and visual installation, explores these questions.
