THE ARTS OF LIFE HOSTS COMMUNITY EXHIBITION AND DINNER

How We Make It 2015’ Opening Celebrates the Life of Its Founding Artist;

Chicago, IL —The Arts of Life, a Chicago non-profit committed to providing high quality, innovative services for artists with developmental disabilities, is pleased to announce the opening of its latest exhibition How We Make It 2015 at The Arts of Life Chicago Studio and Gallery located at 2010 W. Carroll Ave. The opening event, taking place on Friday, April 24th from 6 pm- 9 pm, will also serve as a heartwarming celebration of the studio’s founding artist Veronica “Granny” Cuculich. 

How We Make It will showcase the talents of The Arts of Life staff, interns and volunteers in recognition of the continuous support they give to both the studio and its artists. Accompanying the art opening will be a memorial for founding artist Veronica “Granny” Cuculich whose extraordinary life and art continues to inspire The Arts of Life community. During the event, there will be a viewing of the documentary feature Life and Where I’m At: The Life and Art of Veronica Cuculich, which showcases Granny’s important role in the creation of The Arts of Life

There will also be a potluck dinner featuring all of Ms. Cuculich’s favorite foods—pulled pork, Italian food, fruit, macaroni and cheese, Oreos, pizza, pudding, and coffee. 

The opening is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome. 

The Arts of Life is people, with and without disabilities, creating an artistic culture to realize their full potential.  Opened in 2000, The Arts of Life was the first program in Chicago to provide employment in the arts for adults with developmental disabilities. The studio serves as both an alternative day program and creative epicenter for its artists. Funded partly by the Department of Human Services, The Arts of Life also greatly depends on fundraising efforts and grants to sustain its program.
