Participatory Arts: Crafting Social Change

Jane Addams Hull-House Museum, University of Illinois at Chicago

800 South Halsted Street, Chicago, Illinois 60607

Jane Addams Hull-House Museum presents Participatory Arts: Crafting Social Change, an exhibition exploring the settlement’s role as an early and influential site for the visual and performing arts in Chicago. The exhibition features artworks and artifacts from the museum and Special Collections at the University of Illinois at Chicago—many of which have rarely, if ever, been publicly displayed. Altogether, the exhibition reveals the significant impact of the historic Hull-House Settlement’s art programs—such as book-binding, ceramics, theater arts, and art therapy—on Chicago’s art and design legacy.

Featured artists: Leah Gipson, Nicole Marroquin, and Regin Igloria, DJ Sadie Rock, and partners North Branch Projects, Free Street Theater, Albany Park Theater Project and UIC School of Theater and Music.
