The Black Experience: MFA After Party


  • School of the Art Institute - LeRoy Neiman Center 37 South Wabash Avenue Chicago, IL, 60603 United States (map)

The Black Experience is the first annual event that provides a cross pollination of inter-generational, multidisciplinary art exchange through a Black cultural lens, and provides a deeper awareness around the plurality of artistic practices within SAIC’s Black community. The African Diaspora in Chicago holds great significance, and is one of the reasons why Chicago is considered an internationally recognized cultural hub. In addition to engaging the SAIC community, The Black Experience will integrate the artistic histories and practices of graduating Black SAIC students within their greater Chicago community.
