Keen exhibition. Young Chicagoland artists in grades 9-12 are encouraged to create pieces loosely influenced by the outsider artists Lee Godie, George Widener and/or Prince Twins Seven-Seven, while still expressing their own personal style and experiences. All mediums of two-dimensional art are encouraged for submissions.

Exhibition on view: Friday, April 24-Sunday, April 26
Opening night event: Friday, April 24, 6-8 p.m. Make sure to stop by for some free snacks, and to celebrate youth artists around the city!
