Since launching Shared Walls™ in the Fall of 2013, we’ve worked with a variety of private & public spaces in an effort to make art accessible to everyone. Having checked community centers & parks off our list over that period, we’re making in-roads that will further the mission and bring art to more and more spaces throughout Chicago… if not in other cities too!
As such, we’re super proud to announce our most recent charitable temporary art exhibition as part of Shared Walls™ with Darwin Elementary School in Logan Square.
After connecting with art teach Mr. Shortlidge, Principal Mauricio Segovia and his team were a blast to collaborate with. We wanted to curate the art into the heartbeat of the school, the hub of energy where everyone passes through and can enjoy the art. In line with that, we installed 21 pieces of art by local artists Missy Rosa, Fugscreens and Dolan Geiman. We’re huge fans of their artwork and love the way this exhibition speaks to the variety of experience Chicago provides.
A school that focuses on leadership and growing those skills & attributes in their students, we’re thrilled to extend our mission to our first public school ever; not to mention one that is so closely attuned to the idea that school should prepare you for life, not just passing the test.
Enjoy photos from the exhibition and learn more about the Shared Walls™ program – we’re always looking for great spaces to host our collection, thus removing art from it’s sometimes inaccessible place in galleries, and putting it in where we live, play, and work.
