If you are in Los Angeles on the evening of March 6th, do not miss Candida Alvarez speaking for ArtCenter MFA's Graduate Seminar. She will talk about her work, her major exhibition "Here," and her Fall 2017 collaboration with Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons Homme Plus and Shirt collections. A very special opportunity during a semester of absolutely phenomenal guests! (I taught there for more than 10 years so I know it was always great but this is exceptional!!)

Congratulations to PTDW Professor Michiko Itatani on the opening of the new CTA station at Washington/Wabash in the Chicago Loop that includes her work:
"The Washington/Wabash station also features a new public artwork created especially for the station by Chicago-based artist Michiko Itatani. Two large art glass panels located on both sides of the mezzanine – Cosmic Wanderlust 1 & 2 – reflect on human history and culture of the past, present and future. The artist’s multi-c...olored perspective of this theme features images of libraries, museums, public spaces and performance halls intermingled with images of the cosmos."
Up through this Sunday, “Candida Alvarez: Here” surveys the artist’s ebullient work at the Chicago Cultural Center.
"As a young artist developing a visual language, the most important things for me right now are time and space ..." Tully Satre's priorities are on point (and, yes, that is a School of the Art Institute of Chicago cap). His work is on view in the Summer Exhibition 2017 at the Royal Academy in London until August 20th.
Thank you Jason Fomberg for this fantastic Chicago Magazine profile of Professor Candida Alvarez on the occasion of her exhibition "Candida Alvarez: Here," at the Chicago Cultural Center from April 29th to August 6th, 2017. Professor and Department Chair Terry R. Myers is the guest curator of the exhibition.
