Angel Otero: Touch With Your Eyes

@ Chicago Cultural Center

78 E Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602

Opening Friday, January 29th, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Sunday, March 28th

The deeply personal and passionate paintings of Angel Otero have made a mark on the cultural scene over the past few years. Otero, having just completed his MFA degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago this spring, was one of only four awardees nationwide to receive the prestigious Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the visual arts this year, which will support his work over a two-year period in New York.

This exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center will be Otero’s largest solo show to date; it will bring together some 12-15 new works from the artist’s studio and private collections as evidence of his masterful use of materials, as well as revealing his ideas that stem from growing up in Puerto Rico and training in Chicago.
