Black Creativity 2015: A glimpse inside

SHARE Black Creativity 2015: A glimpse inside

The annual Black Creativity art exhibition will be on display at the Museum of Science and Industry until mid February. It’s worth the trip, if only to see the fanciful takes on contemporary art. This juried exhibit has shown annually at the museum since 1970. Founder and Chicago Defender journalist Earl Calloway died last year, but the show will go on. Much has been made of the issue of diversity in the arts. But several Chicago artists has long held that the city is unique in that it devoutly supports artists of all colors.
