Inspired by the Terra Art Design Chicago initiative and the MCA exhibition Picture Fiction: Kenneth Josephson and Contemporary Photography, this event explores creative connections across generations in Chicago. Through performance and conversation, a diverse group of established and emerging artists and designers, including Ciera McKissick, Suellen Rocca, Luke Batten, and Aay Preston Myint, pay homage to the past, celebrate the present, and look toward the future of creative production in Chicago. This conversation is moderated by MCA adjunct curator Lynne Warren.


Legacies in Art and Design is part of Art Design Chicago, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art exploring Chicago’s art and design legacy, with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
