Bridgeport Art Center announces the opening of “CHICAGO: INsideOUT”, a fine art exhibition highlighting stark contrasts in the urban landscape and the culturally diverse human experience of Chicago, bringing together works by over 70 artists, curated by multidisciplinary artist Kathryn Gauthier assisted by artist Gregory Mejia.
Curator Kathryn Gauthier explains the theme of the exhibit; “This exhibition looks at the city, not only as architectural landscape, but also as a place of residence and experience. … It dazzles with lofty skyscrapers, sensuous waterways, lavish parks, and world-class museums…a fantastic playground where cultures connect and fresh ideas abound! Up close, among its neighborhoods and residential streets, Chicago presents an intricate network of cultural enclaves and economic milieus in which the psyche of its inhabitants develops. Chicago struggles with all the problems associated with reinventing itself: urban blight, crumbling infrastructure, and increased violence, and political corruption, but it revels in the beauties of it’s parks and lakefront as well as it’s architectural and cultural heritage”.
