Unfinished Business: Arts Education— a community curated, participatory art exhibition that explores the importance of the arts and insists on cultural rights as part of a thriving democracy!
The exhibit makes connections between Hull-House history and our contemporary moment, and seeks to unleash our radical imaginations about our collective future.
Interactive art-making stations throughout the space revive the Hull-House commitment to learning-by-doing.
HULL-HOUSE POP-UP PRINT SHOP
This installation, co-curated by David Jones at Anchor Graphics, will have a working relief printing press that visitors will use to print postcards designed by local artists: Angee Lennard & Sarah Atlas, Liz Born, Jeremy Cody, Carlos Barberena, and Aay Preston-Myint. Send a postcard to a politician, urging them to support the arts and arts education. Or, send one to a Chicago Public School art teacher, thanking them for all the work they do to keep the arts alive in their classrooms.
Print shop hours
In homage to the Hull-House Labor Museum, three floor-to-ceiling looms, designed and built by artist Alexis Ortiz, will be installed in the exhibition. Visitors will be able to learn a simple Guatemalan weaving technique and contribute to a large-scale woven map of Chicago.
This exhibition runs until November 2012.
