Join us as Jason Reblando, our March artist in residence, returns to LATITUDE to talk about his project New Deal Utopias! Reblando will give an artist’s talk and engage in a public conversation on utopias, power structures, and planned communities. New Deal Utopias is on view at the City Gallery in the Historic Water Tower at 806 North Michigan Avenue through the final weekend in September. As always, this talk is free, open to the public, and BYO.
