DESCRIPTION

The exhibition “Chicago Artists Interpret Shakespeare: As They Like It” contains works by 39 established Chicago area artists in almost all media and a wide range of styles, demonstrating that the poetry and magic of Shakespeare’s great works continue to remain relevant to artists of today.   It includes paintings, drawings, prints, fabric, ceramic, and sculpture in various media. Some of the works are highly realistic depictions of Shakespeare’s themes, some illustrative and fanciful, others semi-abstract.
