The Chicago Effect

Stop by the Cleve Carney Gallery, Gallery 1 & Gallery 2 to new exhibition The Chicago Effect: Redefining the Middle. On view from August 24 to November 23, the new exhibition explores the concept of "the middle" through the exploration of permeable boundaries, liminal spaces, and the in-betweens.
