The event is free and open to the public.

Eichhorn’s works stems from his ongoing fascination with the cult of plants, touching on sacred rituals and spaces with figurative, abstract and plant-based imagery. Chicago artist Stephen Eichhorn (b.1984) creates delicate hand-cut paper collages from photos of foliage—palm fronds, grasses, leaves and flowers. Quiet and poetic, Eichhorn’s work radiates a complex harmony between the natural and handmade world. His exhibition at the Soccer Club Club consists of of new collage, sculpture and textile works.
