Human Resources
Reception Opening

Friday, July 12, 5-8pm

Chicago Artists Coalition and Arts of Life are pleased to present Human Resources, an exhibition of 12 artists who utilize and work for the Arts of Life studio program.

Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, July 12th, from 5-8pm at Chicago Artists Coalition | 2130 W. Fulton St.

There’s a particular quote by Gustave Moreau (b. France 1868 – d. France 1898) the famed Symbolist painter and teacher that goes “I am the bridge over which certain of you will pass”. Expressed to some of Moreau’s students, this sentiment is simultaneously hopeful and troubling. Bridges help people to cross something otherwise impassible, but if a person is a bridge, that means they often spend their life getting walked on. The utility of this thought lies in the realization that we all use each other to a certain extent. And, most certainly, it is in the recognition of those moments when we become aware of the fact that another artist’s painting or writing or performance has become a bridge between oneself and the crossing of some raging river of self-doubt, or some impossibly deep canyon of inactivity.

Featured Artists:

Renata Berdes, Austin Boehs, Andreana Donahue, Rio Goodwin Perez, Payton Harris-Woodard, Aaron Kleeblatt, David Krueger, Laura McManus, Travis Morehead, Ingrid Olson, Susan Pasowicz, Tim Stone

Image Description: A painting by Aaron Kleebatt of Actor/Comedian, Eddie Murphy as Axel Foley in the movie Beverly Hills Cop. The portrait shows a side view of Axel Foley wearing a lettermen’s jacket with the Number 61 on the shoulder and he is holding a gun.
