Uncovering the Cool; What Rine Likes

Uncovering the Cool; What Rine Likes

Yesterday, artist Rine Boyer shared some great links to (mostly Chicago-based) institutions and artists.  I compiled them all here for you, mom!  

ART: 

Nina Chanel Abney (at Chicago Cultural Center)- bold, colorful paintings that tackle political and social issues using Abney's own symbolic language.  (I saw this show and, for real, it's worth the trip!)
