Invisible Labors: Reviving Histories of Women’s Land Work in the Blue Island Ridge Communities, Chicago, Illinois.
Opening Thursday, December 8th, from 5PM - 8PM
In honor of Jane Addams Day, please join Jane Addams Hull-House Museum for the book launch of Invisible Labors: Reviving Histories of Women’s Land Work in the Blue Island Ridge Communities, Chicago, Illinois. Authors Susannah Papish, artist and Director of boundary gallery, and Melissa Potter, artist and Professor at Columbia College Chicago, will be in dialogue with printer Jacob Lindgren of Inga Books and Tom McCormick of Thomas McCormick Gallery about the project from the genesis of the garden design to the development of the artist book. The conversation will also feature a video interview with designer Tamara Becerra Valdez. Like Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, Invisible Labors connects the efforts and desires of Chicago’s Progressive Era social reformers to women working today across the arts and social justice.
