Each week during Wednesday office hours, New Haven Free Public Library Creative in Residence Nadine Nelson will use MakeHaven as her studio space to work on a variety of projects for her installations and social sculptures. Simultaneously, another artist and/or creative will be creating in their own space on their own project. You are invited to be a voyeur on both artist’s processes and also ask questions about your artistic and creative ventures.  Creative engagement is an interactive and relational activity that creates community together.
