Illinois Humanities / Envisioning Justice Public Reception
August 17, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join us at a public reception celebrating the opening of Illinois Humanities’ Envisioning Justice exhibition and the many artists, individuals, and organizations across Chicago involved in this ambitious initiative.
Saturday, August 17, 2019
School of the Art Institute of Chicago
33 South State Street, 7th Floor
RSVP requested. Light refreshments will be served.
The culmination of two years of the Envisioning Justice initiative, this dynamic and multi-faceted exhibition shares the work of Chicago artists and communities as they visualize, actualize, and reimagine strategies, policies, and approaches in service of a society that is just for all. Featuring artwork, ephemera, and documentation from seven Chicago communities impacted by incarceration and works by artists whose practices respond to such themes, this exhibition interrogates the failures of our criminal justice system while presenting plans toward self-empowerment and communal liberation.
We hope to see you there!
Executive Director, Illinois Humanities
