Colleen Krupa Assists Woman Made Gallery with the 20 Neighborhoods Exhibition
Colleen photographed work and helped install the exhibition at Woman Made Gallery. The exhibition was created in celebration of the Gallery’s 20th Anniversary, and it has taken on the unique task of working within 20 different and vibrant neighborhoods throughout Chicago, many of them lacking in access to arts programming.
"With the help of teaching artists, teaching assistants, partner organizations, interns, and countless volunteers, 20 Neighborhoods has successfully introduced a diverse group of individuals to an array of artistic skills and abilities, as well as created space for new conversations on self, home, community, and city. Since June, Woman Made Gallery has hosted found-object assemblage sculpture workshops for participating women, and in some cases youth, at each organization’s location, which will culminate in an exhibition of all the participants’ art pieces, writing, additional project documentation, and a group-created site-specific installation at Woman Made Gallery in October of 2012. The exhibition will be one of 12 featured programs for Chicago Artists Month., and worked specifically with the artists who hail from the Bridgeport neighborhood."
