STREET STUDIES
2005
Chicago Art Department/SXU
Intermedia/Performance
This program offered students the opportunity to explore and learn about the city of Chicago through art making. Students chose a street in Chicago and spent 15 weeks developing art with the street as the main subject. Each week students were led through workshops, working in different media, asking artists to develop a skill-set catered to their project. While CAD students worked with East-West streets, Saint Xavier University students worked on North-South ones. The resulting exhibitions at both CAD and SXU featured "intersections", pairings of students who had worked on streets that intersected somewhere in Chicago.
