Attention Columbia Artists and Activists!
In preparation for our Fall 2020 focus topic, ARTIVISM 2020 we are mounting an interactive exhibit on the Library's first floor featuring signage and artwork created for and/or inspired by the recent BLM Protests in Chicago and across the country. Inspired by the evolving art gallery that has taken over the fences surrounding the White House in D.C., we are covering our first floor walls with protest artwork, signage, printed matter, ephemera, and more..We are hoping to create an exhibit that will be up through the Fall Semester that reinforces the relationships between protest and artwork, as well as captures an important historic moment in both.
We are seeking work from all corners of the Columbia College Chicago community--students, staff, faculty and alumni. To contribute work to the exhibit, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: BLM Exhibit) with 3-5 images of your work and/ or what you would like to contribute. (You are welcome to contribute as many pieces as you would like, but we'd like to get a feel space-wise how much room you'll need.) We will work with you to arrange drop-off and/or installation details in August.
