Come to the opening Reception for an Interactive Installation about ugliness, beauty, happiness and despair

You are welcome to an opening reception for “Reading with and without Dick and Jane” and exhibition mounted in conjunction with performances of “The Bluest Eye,” by Toni Morrison, adapted by Lydia Diamond, produced by the UIC Department of Theatre and Music, Directed by Derrick Sanders. “Reading with and without Dick and Jane” is an Interactive installation that considers how we define and reconcile beauty and ugliness, happiness and despair, self acceptance and conformity, self-deprecation and self-worth.

Opening Reception is Friday, February 15th, 4:00-6:00pm at the African American Cultural Center Gallery, Addams Hall, Room 207, 830 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, IL 60607

If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact the AACC.

Later in the spring, we will have a neighborhood night at the theatre to see this play, “The Bluest Eye”. If you can’t make the opening reception, stop by the AACC another time to see the exhibit.
