The National Urban League Conference Fine Art Exhibit

urban league art show

On the advice of a career counselor, I went to a job fair today at McCormick Place. But I almost didn't make it into the exhibit hall because just outside the career fair, much to my pleasant surprise, there was a stunning display of art. And Gallery Guichard, a well-known Chicago gallery specializing in African-American art, is displaying it. Some of the artists on display are Max Sansing, whose show I checked out at Three Peas Art Lounge, and Joyce Owens, who also writes a blog that I follow. The show ends tomorrow, August 1st with a panel and lecture series from noon to 4 p.m. Click the postcard to read all the details.

Though the cost of getting into the conference is pretty steep (the theme this year is The Path to Power, and apparently it costs a lot of money to get on that path), it won't cost you anything to see the exhibit. You'll find it on the third floor of the West Building in McCormick Place.
