Project Description
Inspired by the spirited energy that defines the changing seasons, And We’re Back! is a representation of how the city springs to life after months of contemplative gray. Vibrant and verdant, the atmosphere feels a little lighter, our lives more effervescent. And in this energizing curation, vivid colors create an energy and vitality that lovingly celebrate this cherished time of year.
