January 20  Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago: Two Special Exhibits
Get ready for the upcoming presidential elections as we investigate the exciting exhibit, Kathryn Andrews: Run for President.   The artist raises issues of how visual image producers from corporations to Hollywood studios to fine artists use visual cues to elicit desire.  The exhibit takes us on a journey charting the rise and fall of presidential power and how meanings are subject to change. We’ll also explore works by internationally renowned Puerto Rican artist Rafael Ferrer who became known in the 1960s for his use of impermanent materials and vivid colors reflecting the island life of his youth.
Meet: street level entrance at the corner of East Pearson and Mies Van Der Rohe Way.
