UIC has a new SOCIAL JUSTICE INiTIATIVE. One of it’s goals is to create engagement between the university and the community. That’s us. On this Thursday from 5:00- 7:30 there will be the opening of a space for pop-up art on 729 Maxwell Street. Here’s a fabulous event and arts space in our community. There will be a photo exhibit titled What is a Life Worth? It is a photo collage of community based struggles around education, health care, labor, immigration, food justice, and housing in Chicago over the past five years. The photographer is a UIC student Sarah Jane Rhee, and the exhibit designer is a Visiting Scholar at the new Social Justice Institute.
How cool, a pop up art space in our neighborhood, and sponsored by UIC…. This is what makes living in a university community so exciting. See you there!
