See what we did last year: TK Art of the City
Long time TK resident and current residential manager Doug Vann took portrait photos of current TK residents and asked them to share briefly on how living in the building impacts their lives.
His photo series was exhibited at last year’s TK Art of the City. The project is documented in a commemorative book, Why TK? A Celebration and Appreciation of the First 10 Years. Order your copy here.
