Join us at the UIC School of Art & Art History on November 17th for a night of talks, open studios, screenings, and more!
Join us at Gallery 400 for an open and frank conversation about the ways that artists make it in the world—and what does it mean to make it as an artist? Alums from every discipline discuss how they make and present work today; how they cultivate community with fellow artists; and how they forge relationships with curators, programmers, and gallerists. Enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres with our extraordinary alumni in Chicago.
