50x50 DCASE Show

50x50 Invitational / The Subject is Chicago: People, Places, Possibilities

Six distinguished artists and curators, Miguel Aguilar, Janice Bond, Jesse Lee Cochran, Tempestt Hazel, Nicole Marroquin and Tricia Van Eck selected one artist from each of Chicago’s fifty wards, in order to engage a broad cross-section of Chicago artists, few of whom have exhibited previously at the Chicago Cultural Center. The exhibition yielded works in painting, drawing, video, photography, sculpture and design, and demonstrates the diverse perspectives on life in Chicago.
