Visual artist Rebecca Baruc’s first solo exhibition will be free and viewable from June 17, 2021 to July 11, 2021 at Juliet Art House, 1750 South Union Ave.
The Color of Normal is a visual art exhibition inviting people to meditate on how they’ve changed, personally and collectively this past year. The selling of the artwork is benefitting Pilsen Alliance and is tiered into accessible price points through a raffle structure.
On display will be pastel portraits of Chicago community members alongside figurative oils, acrylics, and digital artworks. All these works celebrate a living, breathing community of diverse voices, and explore how people perceive each other and themselves. With QR codes presented alongside the portraits, viewers can hear audio of the subjects reflecting on the past year, their current lives, and how they see their futures.
The show lives at Juliet Art House, a new flexible space in the Chicago Arts District in Pilsen dedicated to showcasing and connecting local artists and small business owners. Founded by Chicago Public Schools teachers, Juliet Art House strives to prioritize community and educational partnerships in its creative practice.
The artist and producing team will be present for Open House hours, 4:00-6:00 Saturdays: June 19, June 26, July 3, July 10.
