    Union Sound Hall has hit the ground running since opening in August 2013.

  • The Visual Artist

    “Visual art” is a broad term that shouldn’t be taken strictly. It can describe anything from paintings to ceramics to the applied arts like industrial design and architecture. But for 25-year-old Fabián Velasco, its definition is only limited by a creative and free-thinking imagination.
