Join us for the second big reveal in TAG: Round 2 to see the progress the artists made in the previous week and gain special insight into how their artworks will evolve throughout the course of the project. Dr. Caroline A. Schaerfl, PhD. specializes in clinical psychology and will delve deep into the the decision-making process of Hirsch and Thornton to discuss how they relate to each other through the way they address their shared artworks. Medium/clairvoyant and President of A Village--Personal and Spiritual Development Center, Marianne Goldweber, will channel the energies of the artists and artworks to predict how TAG will develop into its final form. The artists will be in attendance to discuss their work and answer questions from the audience.
