In April, MFA '21 graduate Sara Zak and Department of Art Professor George Hughes, were part of a dynamic collaboration named the Working Artists Lab, run through UB's Arts Collaboratory. The program will host visiting artist Cecily Brown and multiple members of the Buffalo arts community. 

“We have assembled a group of collaborators that represent a cross-section of diverse artists working in many disciplines from within the university and throughout our community who are well-versed in storytelling, painting and drawing,” says Bronwyn Keenan, director of the Arts Collaboratory. “These seven people represent our core group, but everyone is welcome to participate and share ideas while we’re at The Space Between.”
