Ok, so I realize it’s not actually Wednesday, but it’s been a busy week! In any case, I figured that I would try something new with my event recap for last Friday’s We Are Family opening at Post Family. The show, which was a part of AIGA Chicago‘s Design Week, featured emerging artists/designers and great music. Below are some of my favorite pieces with links to the artists’ sites. Where known, the piece’s title is also given.
Andy and Julie’s ephemera display, Artifacts and Interactions, was not only engaging, but also had a great little guide to accompany it.
Aside from Balloona Lisa, Plural had a modern camera obscura set up between 2 computers in a separate room. Check out the scans at the above link and see if you can spot me!
Also of note, although not photographed due to crowds, were Sonnenzimmer‘s posters. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to snag as many photos as I had hoped I would. Does anyone remember who did the large enamel discs in the top image?
In fact, the entire show was great as I mentioned earlier, and the turnout was also really good. A huge “congrats!” to all of the participating artists, and a big thank you to Craig and Carolyn for a fun night of dinner and art.
