DESCRIPTION

Most people in the United States reside in major cities, filled with concrete sidewalks and skyscrapers, or in suburbs where single family homes sit on carefully tended lawns. Urban or suburban, each lifestyle is characterized by distinctive architecture and civic planning that shape values , politics and the way inhabitants interact with one another. The artists in Urban/Suburban come from one or the other of these environments, so it is no surprise that their works reflect the world in which they live.
