DESCRIPTION

The Zhou B Art Center presents Chicago's Twelve, an exhibition celebrating World Earth Day. Curator Sergio Gomez has selected twelve Chicago artists currently turning their attention to Mobilizing the Earth, the focus of this year's World Earth Day. Through interaction with environmental issues, the re-purposing of found objects, and utilization of non-traditional material, these artists call into question not only our present relationship with our world, but also the possibility of its sustainable future. Works in the exhibition will include installations, sculpture and mixed media.  Artists in the exhibition include Jason Brammer, Mary Croteau, Victoria Fuller, Sharon Gilmore, Kim Guare, Salvador Jimenez Flores, Dana Major Kanovitz, N. Masani Muhammad, Yva Neal, Connie Noyes, Alfonso Piloto-Nieves, and Vivian Visser. 

The Zhou B Art Center will also be celebrating the Earth at Earth Fest on Friday, May 18th, 2012 from 7-10 PM.
