Art of the Neighborhood

I’m excited to be chosen as one of Chicago’s 10 artists included in Willis Tower’s and Chicago Artists Coalition’s exhibit that is part of the new Art of the Neighborhood program!

Willis Tower is partnering with the Chicago Artists Coalition (CAC) to provide 10 local artists with a platform to showcase their work in an effort to highlight the Tower as a cultural force and destination.

The exhibit is the first phase of Art of the Neighborhood, a dynamic new arts initiative that draws inspiration from Chicago’s creative energy to foster ongoing art programming throughout Willis Tower for tenants and visitors. Because the city is so diverse and composed of many neighborhoods, each with their own energy and character, the exhibit features an exciting group of contemporary artists with diverse backgrounds and studio practices who all live and work in neighborhoods throughout Chicago.

By bringing these artworks together, the exhibition demonstrates an expansive range of color, form, technique and texture. From layered photographs to graphic collages to woven fabric and re-staged still lifes, the exhibit offers a vivid reflection of the complexity, creative energy, and constant motion of Chicago.

CNL Projects is curating the Willis Tower exhibit, which is now open in the Tower’s lobby area accessible from the Adams St. entrance. The exhibit will be open to building tenants and the general public. At the end of the program, Willis Tower tenants will have the opportunity to vote for one piece of art that will remain on permanent display in the Tower House café on the 33rd floor of the Tower.

Exhibition runs through July 9, 2019
