SKYLINE Tours – Sponsored by Gensler
The 2014 SKYLINE event has just added more tours due to demand! Tour dates have been added for Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22. Founder and director of SKYLINE, Melissa Urcan will act as the tour Emcee as she discusses the overall project, architecture sites, and architects and artists work chosen for the event. Then, at selected sites, the architects and artists will be on hand to discuss the design and thought process behind the installations, and the resulting work on view.
Two tours will be held on Friday, February 21 and Saturday, February 22. The tours start at 6pm and 8pm, and last two hours each. These are walking tours. Both tours for each night will cover approximately half of the installation sites – the 6pm tour will be covering installations within the Fashion District and the 8pm tour will cover installations in the Broadway and Historic Districts.
All tours will depart from 325 W. 8th Street (Corner of Hill and 8th Street – Installation #4). Tours will depart promptly at 6:00pm and 8:00pm respectively. Be sure to arrive early to register. Tours will return to the starting destination at 8:00pm and 10:00pm respectively, or tour goers are welcome to continue onto other locales after the tour is completed.
Both Friday and Saturday tours, February 21 and 22 will include the dance performance of Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre at the Cooper Design Space, and provide an opportunity to meet the performers.
