On Friday, October 6th the Ukrainian Institute of Modern Art held the opening reception for its new show A is for Artist, curated by Scott Hunter. This exhibition brings together artwork by artists from The Arts of Life, as well as other similar arts organizations throughout Chicago as well as outside of the city.
Because our founding Artist, Veronica Cuculich, was a visual artist, the studio began as a visual arts program. Our community uses a system of collective decision making and grows based on the needs of our current members. Using that system, each studio will incorporate a variety of artistic mediums that fit the needs of our artists. Along with Visual Arts, the Chicago studio features music and printmaking initiatives and the North Shore studio features music and performance.
