On Tuesday, April 23rd, at 6PM, join Loyola University Chicago Fine Arts professor Paula Wisotzki for a lecture entitled Chagall, the Bible, and Chicago at LUMA.
Currently on display as part of the LUMA’s Graven Images exhibition, Marc Chagall’s work has been described as whimsical, dreamlike, and fantastic. Dr. Wisotzi’s lecture will explore his series of Hebrew Bible illustrations in relation to traditional Christian iconography and his own Russian Jewish background and discuss related projects that linked Chagall to Chicago’s art community.
Admission is free for Loyola University students, faculty, staff, and LUMA Members, and costs $4 for the general public. For any additional information, please contact email@example.com or 312.915.7608. RSVP today!
Just as there is a slightly scientific method to the madness of creating art, there can be beautiful art that springs from scientific endeavors. For those still skeptical, come down to the WEBZ North Side Community Bureau on April 16 to see the winning submissions from the Capturing the Beauty of Science photo contest, hosted by Northwestern University.
NU sought to demonstrate that through hard scientific research, art can emerge hand-in-hand with incredible discoveries. Contestants ranged from students to faculty members, and the three winning submissions will be on display at the WEBZ North Side Community Bureau.
You will get a chance to view their work, hear about the research that went in behind the art (from quantum theory to nano-technology), and meet the scientists responsible. Admission is free, so be sure to stop by from 6-7:30PM. You can find out more about the contest, the winning contestants, and location details by clicking here.
