MAKING IN CHICAGO
What: Slag Glass City/One Book, One Chicago Mashup Event
in conjunction with citywide discussions of this year’s book,
The Third Coast by Thomas Dyja.
Where: DePaul Art Museum, 935 W Fullerton, 2nd Floor
When: Monday, February 22, 2016 at 6:00- 8:00 PM
Chicago is often described as the most American of cities and in his book The Third Coast Thomas Dyja writes that to understand America we must understand the legacies of Chicago-made culture. How then do we understand the contribution of artists working in Chicago now? Are we Chicago artists or just artists who happen to live and work here? Is Chicago our identity, our mission, one of our traditions, or merely an accident of time and place? This multidisciplinary panel of artists who teach at Chicago’s DePaul University attempt to answer the question: what does it mean to be a maker of art in Chicago today?
The Panelists include: DOLORES WILBER from The School of Design, FRANCESCA ROYSTER from English, COYA PAZ from Theater, and CHI JANG YIN from Art, Media, & Design. BARRIE JEAN BORICH, founder and editor of Slag Glass City, will moderate.
This event is free and open to the public.
