Here are highlights from a three-month residency of DRAW and a month-long residency of WRITE at Chelsea Market. DRAW is a portable art studio that travels the city and lets New Yorkers draw together. WRITE is a new program that lets New Yorkers write, type, scrawl a postcard, poem, or anything they like, and share it with each other. Thanks to our host Chelsea Market.
