Making in Chicago

Chicago is often described as the most American of cities and in his book The Third Coast Thomas Dyja writes that to understand America we must understand the legacies of Chicago-made culture. How then do we understand the contribution of artists working in Chicago now? Are we Chicago artists or just artists who happen to live and work here? Is Chicago our identity, our mission, one of our traditions, or merely an accident of time and place? This multidisciplinary panel of artists who teach at Chicago's DePaul University attempt to answer the question: what does it mean to be a maker of art in Chicago today?


This program is presented in partnership and support of One Book, One Chicago and The Chicago Public Library.
