Upcoming Event: The Invisible Artist



I think this is such a great idea for an event and wanted to make sure I posted information about it here:



The Invisible Artist:
Creators from Chicago's Southside

Suffering from a long history of negative stereotypes and the harsh
realities of urban living, Chicago’s Southside community & residents
have struggled to gain the many benefits afforded to the larger
Chicagoland area. This “invisibility”, has also affected the artistic
community in such a way, that internationally recognized artists have
struggled to make their mark in their own city.

This program will explore the areas social & cultural
history, as well as the numerous creators & institutions from within
the community that have been active participants in
dispelling myths about the Southside of Chicago.
