The Arts of Life is pleased to announce the opening of its 2014 How We Make It show at The Arts of Life Chicago Studio and Gallery located at 2010 W. Carroll Ave. The opening event, taking place on Friday, April 25th 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. In addition our neighbors over at Anthony’s Own will be sponsoring drinks for the evening. The opening is free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.
