@ Studio Oh!

1837 S Halsted St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, February 10th, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Tuesday, February 28th

Come to a closing for the Studio Oh! show inspired by graffiti and street art. The purpose is to capture the transient nature of graffiti to allow it a permanent base within institutional art.

Contemporary graffiti grew in popularity in the 1970’s onto subway cars, trains and city buildings becoming recognized as a public exhibition and as an act of defiance. The combination of stylized letters and symbolism is a form of self-expression to give a voice to the voiceless. These artists have spent several years mastering and rendering their craft to translate from the streets to a traditional gallery setting.

Featured Artists:
Derric Clemmons
Ronit Wiener
John Yaou
