Party! Keep Moving at Expo 72
Friday November 2nd 2018, 6:30 pm8:30 pm

72 E Randolph St., Chicago. Free and open to the public!

 

Help us perpetuate the cycle…of fun! Celebrate the opening of Keep Moving: Designing Chicago’s Bicycle Culture with an evening at Expo 72! While exploring the exhibition, you can create your own risograph art prints using bicycle parts and inspiration drawn from the material on exhibition, share cycling stories as part of our “Bikes of Chicago” series, and mingle with the Chicago design community during the 7th annual Chicago Design Week!

 

When you’ve had your fill of wheelie neat activities and terrible bike puns, head across the street for the opening reception of African American Designers in Chicago: Art, Commerce and the Politics of Race at the Chicago Cultural Center. Or, if you want to get an earlier start on the night, attend the keynote address of The Designs of African American Life Symposium, “Common Things Surprise Us: Black Chicago’s Artists and Models Balls and the Politics of Middlebrown(n) Taste” by Jacqueline Goldsby (Yale University) at 5:00pm. 

 

To clarify, here’s a schedule of events that evening:

5:00–6:00pm: Keynote: The Designs of African American Life Symposium, Chicago Cultural Center (77 E. Randolph)

6:30–8:30pm: Opening Party: Keep Moving, Expo 72 (72 E. Randolph)

6:30–8:30pm: Opening Reception: African American Designers in Chicago: Art, Commerce and the Politics of Race, Cultural Center (77 E. Randolph)

Hope you can join us!
