Off The Streets
Friday, October 5, 2012 to Sunday, October 28, 2012
In the spirit of this year’s Chicago Artists Month theme, “Art Block by Block”, “Off The Streets” will feature artists who add their flare to the personality of Wicker Park by living and working in the neighborhood. These locals were found by word of mouth alone, and chosen for their distinction among the masses of under-represented artists in the neighborhood. Six talented individuals will represent the current artistic vibe of the neighborhood once so well known as an art studio village. One of these artists, Laura Lee Junge, began painting in a neighborhood attic studio during Wicker Park’s development into an art haven. Junge returns this earlier body of work to hang in the gallery she now co-owns, with the work of artists currently making Wicker Park their home and inspiration. "Off The Streets" displays a history of Wicker Park artists, both past and present, and their influence in defining the neighborhood. The exhibit runs from October 1st through October 28th 2012. An opening reception with the artists is scheduled for the evening of Friday, October 12th from 6-9pm. Reception and exhibit are free to the public.
