SDA MEMBER'S EXHIBITION:
Blind Eye: The Result of Doing Nothing, the first ever Midwest SDA members' exhibition.Which will be anofficial part of Chicago Artist Month, including an artists talk on October 20th.
Exhibition Concept: Too often we see tragic situations that result from the lack of action. This exhibition hopes to explore the destructive results of ignoring a situation, including people's ignorance to thinking everything will be ok when they choose to not get involved in making the world a better place. This includes small everyday actions to the grand and global.
Pieces will be 15" x 15" and must be able to hang on a wall
Due in early September 2012
Check out IL SDA blog for full prospectus
Exhibition will be at The HumanThread Gallery in Pilsen in October
Open to all Midwest Surface Design Association members and Jeannette Thompson has asked that SAQA members be included in this exhibit. So let's work hard to get our peices done. It should be an interesting and thought provoking exhibit!
