In November 2021, Jack Straw and Arts and Visually Impaired Audiences (AVIA) presented an accessible online youth and family art workshop in conjunction with Andrew Fallat’s New Media Gallery exhibit Timbre, which featured his original sculptures that interact with and amplify sound in different ways.
