Illinois Humanities and our Envisioning Justice partners are
bringing to a close more than a year’s worth of arts and humanities work around the problem of mass incarceration.
We invite you to mark this moment by joining your colleagues from the worlds of the Arts, Public Policy, Philanthropy, and Community Organizing for a reception that will include:
Amazing performances by Sam Trump, Vershawn Sanders-Ward of Red Clay Dance Company, and more.
Music by Free Write Sound & Vision.
Conversations with Public Policy experts such as Inspector General Joe Ferguson, the Metropolitan Planning Council’s Dan Cooper, and more.
Food by Chef Lamar Moore and Cocktails by Letherbee Distillers.
We will also look to the future as we announce the seven commissioned artists who’ll be working with our Envisioning Justice communities on original work to be featured in the culminating, citywide exhibition at Sullivan Galleries at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in August 2019.
Mass incarceration needs to be a citywide concern, and through the work of people like you it is becoming one. On February 13, let’s come together to celebrate each other’s efforts and to share our visions of a more just world.
