5 Years Later: an interdisciplinary MFA reunion

@ Agitator

1112 N Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Saturday, November 4th, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Friday, December 1st

This is an exhibit of 10 interdisciplinary artist colleagues who met through the Interdisciplinary graduate program at Columbia College Chicago. We have mostly parted ways in a true interdisciplinary sense becoming a surgical technician, a published writer, an activist and public speaker, an illustrator, an acro yogi…we are all many things beyond these labels.

Please join us at our reunion and opening reception on Saturday, November 4th, 2017, 6-10pm at Agitator Gallery in Wicker Park, Chicago. There will be performative work, video, sculptural and wall pieces as well as music and libations.
