This event is part of the programming for The Tip of My Tongue, an exhibition organized by Weinberg/Newton Gallery in partnership with the Chicago Literacy Alliance.

Featured artist Kirsten Leenaars will be on-hand to discuss how literacy has shaped her work as an artist, and Amy Torres and Elizabeth Johnston from Reading In Motion’s staff will be there to discuss how art has shaped their work in literacy.

This event is part of the programming for The Tip of My Tongue, an exhibition organized by Weinberg/Newton Gallery in partnership with the Chicago Literacy Alliance which aims to draw out the complexities of language as a tool not only for communication but also for connection, discovery, and growth. This group exhibition takes an expansive approach to the theme of literacy as it explores the many issues caught up in the web of words we each navigate, from notions of identity and belonging, to autonomy and self-expression. Through sound, color, book arts, and text, this group of works by six Chicago-based artists provides access points to a multiplicity of voices, ideas, viewpoints, and conversations.
