What do the artists Charles White and Leonardo da Vinci (who were born 450 years apart) have in common? According to artist David Hammons —who curated the MoMa’s Charles White—Leonardo da Vinci exhibit—a lot more than we think. On Sunday evening, astrologer Alice Sparkly Kat and artist Cristy C. Road will discuss how art, creativity, and community are all threaded by tarot and astrology, inspired by Hammons’ insightful connections between White and da Vinci. Drinks, an artists-edition brochure, and a self-guided tour of the exhibit (which closes on January 3, 2018) are all free with admission! Tickets are $20 for the general public, and $18 for MoMa members. The drinks and intellectual conversation starts flowing at 7pm sharp!
