During the evenings of April 11 through April 17, Roman Susan Art Foundation will present a video projection at 1224 W Loyola Ave compiled from materials and archival images generously shared by the American Indian Center and Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society. The video will be projected after dark, visible directly from the street, and will subsequently be on view as a part of the exhibition Birchbark, Wiigwaas at Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society this Spring.
At Home Support
Roman Susan strives to support the work of the artists in our midst. With the broad social consequences of COVID-19, we are very grateful to everyone who supports one another through this exceptionally stressful time. Here are some of the ways Roman Susan is moving forward while preparing for the time we can gather together again and share artwork in person. As we cannot be close physically, let’s share this time and get closer in other ways.
This spring 1224 W Loyola Ave will feature new art installations and video projections while the space remains closed. These works are offered to our immediate neighbors, on view from the street. If you are not able to comfortably walk by our storefront from your residence, please enjoy these works from afar, through our website and on social media.
As always, we are doing our best to get resources into the hands of artists. Given the circumstances, Roman Susan wants to encourage and appeal to all of our fellow art organizers – commercial, corporate, collections-based, DIY, domestic, educational, inchoate, non-centered, unstructured, et al – please continue your support of artists while the doors have to close for a time. Though we cannot be open, we’re still working together. Thank you all for your support, please stay safe, and let’s take care of one another.
