Lola Ayisha Ogbara: Hues of Black & Blue

Alexander Fair,
Lemme Know When You Make It

Curated in collaboration with the Youth Board of Artists, this year’s teen exhibition brings together work by young artists from Teen Programs, teaching artists, exhibiting, and residency artists. The exhibition’s title refers to the caring reminder Chicago teens text to check that their friends arrived home safely and alludes to “making it” as creatives of many types. Works in the exhibition explore themes of collective safety, movement of people throughout the city and world, diasporic identities, boundaries crossed either physically or metaphorically, and coming of age on the South Side of the city.
