The New New Chicagoans
In 2005 Public Media Institute put together the New Chicagoans exhibition. The show was curated on the premise of exhibiting the work from an emerging generation of accomplished visual artists in Chicago. This year we have chosen participants from that exhibition to show work with another generation of exciting artists emerging in Chicago today. It's called The New New Chicagoans. This exhibition opens our festival.
