Seen: November at OpenGrounds

To recap: November events at OpenGrounds raised provocative and unusual questions that delved into global politics, pop culture, and the status of design thinking at UVA. Thanks to Hack Cville and the Fralin Museum of Art, OpenGrounds' white walls were brought to life with art exhibitions and music by the UVA Viola Ensemble filled the air. All photos taken by Scott Miller except where noted.
