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!
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!)
Make Trouble by Cecile Richards- The President of Planned Parenthood tells her story.
The Empire of Things by Frank Trentmann- All about the development of consumer culture in the Western world.
Ok, there you have it. Go forth and check out this cool cultural stuff!
Thanks again, Rine!
