Chicago Artists Month: Exquisite Corpse Workshop at the NVAM Satruday Oct 4, 11-1

Join the National Veterans Art Museum and artists from around the city for a community art-making workshop and exhibition. Participants will create a portion of an “Exquisite Corpse”—an art form that exploits accidents and was made famous by the Surrealists—and the created work will be featured in an online exhibition right here on www.nvam.org.

In addition, visitors are invited to view a special exhibition of art works made by NVAM Education apprentices. These apprentices are high school students from Chicago Public Schools who worked intensively with museum staff and the permanent collection this summer in a collaboration with After School Matters. The exhibition of student art features media including photography, video and sculpture.

  • Thanks for posting this. NVAM is doing so many positive things for our veterans!

Petsmart 6 corners

Would like to know 1. Is there a estimated opening and completion date for the petsmart next to jewel? 2. If petsmart already has the property why the for lease sign is still in the window? Reason I ask 2 is when I called a few weeks ago they said property was still available.

6 corners Petsmart?

For some time they have been talking and from what I understand planning for a Petsmart next to jewel by 6 corners. My question is two part. 1. When is the estimated completion/opening dates? 2. If Petsmart already has the spot why is there still a for lease sign in the window?

  • I'm also very curious as to a timeline for opening.

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    The universe was put on hold while the Chipotle was being built. Now that it is open, I am sure this will move forward.
