The older we get the more we care about our history, our genetics, where we come from. Bolivia is a country rich in traditions! It amazes me how the Indigenous make their topos out of spoons, used to pin on their ponchos and textiles. They eventually did

The opening reception of "1+1=Community" is in conjunction with Chicago Artists Month and features the artwork of the OpenWall committee members (the first 1) plus one artist of their choice (the second 1) that live within the 47th Ward.

The current installation has widely known artists like William Conger, Judith Roth, and some surprises, such as Phil Ponce’s first art exhibition. Stunning paintings, pottery and photography showcase the diverse and talented artists living within the neighborhood. The public is invited to mingle with the alderman and his staff, the local community and the artists to discuss their works.

Featured Artists:  William Conger, Patricia Larkin Green, Bill Moran, Phil Ponce, Agustina Diez Sierra, Judith Roth, Sasse Engel, Scotti Estes, Maria Ponce, Jayson Lawfer, Allison Swoboda, Nancy Charak, Maggie Rife and Laura Engel.

Curator Patricia Larkin Green said, "I was honored when the Alderman's office asked me to curate these events. I am a fast believer that artists need a supportive community because as artists we are most vulnerable when we are taking risks. Artists need to create, to exhibit and see each other's work.”

Alderman Ameya Pawar says, “This is how transparency looks to me, I want the office to be a place where people feel they can come inside and interact. The walls are for the Artists.'"
