I was with some friends, looking to explore Chicago. Specifically we were looking to see some of the art that is bubbling up in South Chicago.
We wanted to check out all of the sites Theaster Gates and the Rebuild Foundation are working on. Since the Arts Incubator & Gallery didn’t open until Noon, we decided to drive south and explore the Historic Pullman neighborhood without a plan.
As soon as we pulled off the highway, fate felt pulled directly into the neighborhood. Practically out of nowhere we arrived at a most epic installation / work in progress by my friend Matthew Hoffman in collaboration with Mosnart.
After we explored Pullman, we slowly headed back up north and checked out the thought provoking “How To Make A Hood” exhibition curated by La Keisha Leek at the Arts Incubator gallery. It’s open until October, and if you’re in or around the city you should stop by!
It was a great day in Chicago. The city is HUGE and full of life. As Matthew Hoffman suggests in his new installation, GO FOR IT. Get out there and explore.
