“Real Stories” event at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art

There is a powerful event coming up on Friday June 6th from 5:30-8:00.

Southside students will be coming to Ukrainian Village to present for us. Their project includes photographs, poems and interviews to give a voice to the voiceless and tell the “Real Stories” of the people in their community. These High school freshmen have been exploring the ideas of stereotypes across our Chicago neighborhoods. Students’ writing ranges from their experiences with gangs and violence to being one of the first in their family to graduate high school, to the pride in their families and communities. You can flip through the book they made in this link to see the types of things they share: http://www.blurb.com/books/3250614-our-voices-our-stories-our-truth

This will happen *Friday June 6th* at the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art (2320 W Chicago Ave), please try to stop by to show them that our community cares about their work. RSVP here: https://www.facebook.com/events/282752895227805/?source=1

On View Now at UIMA: Chicago’s Bauhaus Legacy

Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art – August 9 – September 29, 2013

In 1937 the Chicago Association of Art and Industry invited László Moholy-Nagy to head what was to be called the New Bauhaus, four years after the Bauhaus in Berlin was dissolved in 1933 under National Socialist pressure. This exhibit showcases art and design by students of Moholy-Nagy’s schools from 1937-1955: the New Bauhaus, School of Design in Chicago and Institute of Design – with special emphasis on the Foundation Course exercises. In addition, life work of both teachers and students will be shown, from 1937 to the present.

Representing more than sixty individuals, the vast majority of the exhibit is work that has never before been seen. Material has been provided through the generous loans from private collections, in addition to work from the UIMA permanent collection and the Bauhaus Chicago Committee Archive & Collection.

This exhibit is organized in partnership with T. Paul Young and the Bauhaus Chicago committee NFP
