Snow City Arts at the Chicago Athletic Association
For the month of August 2019, Snow City Arts had an exhibit up in the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel’s Fine Arts Display Case. We are honored to be included in a group of exhibitors that includes the MCA and Virgil Abloh, Edra Soto, and Nikko Washington. On display was a large-scale collaborative student project, The Sun Also Rises, inspired by the artwork of Nevaeh, a Snow City Arts student. More than 85 students, ages 5-18, have worked on this mosaic since 2016.
Snow City Arts teaching artists performed live music and poetry readings on Tuesday, August 20th to celebrate the mosaic and close out the exhibit.
