Description

Block Building
Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 12, 5 – 8pm
Exhibition: Oct 12 - Dec 8
Weinberg/Newton Gallery, 300 W Superior Street, Suite 203

Block Building juxtaposes the past and present while tracing both a rich history and vibrant future for Chicago’s block clubs – ultralocal civic organizations that have deep roots throughout the city. The exhibition is organized in partnership with My Block, My Hood, My City and features block club signs that have been designed and fabricated by youth in Arts + Public Life's Design Apprenticeship Program, alongside the old signs they've replaced.
