DEADLINE: The Mary-Frances and Bill Veeck Gallery at Catholic Theological Union

September 16 - December 13, 2019

The Mary-Frances and Bill Veeck Gallery at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago invites members of Chicago Sculpture International to submit art work that reflects their interpretation of the role they play in the Global Village for this juried exhibit.

Background:

We are all part of a Global Village sharing our compassion, empathy and kinship with others throughout the world. As a small part of the whole, each person contributes their energy, ideas and values towards a greater holistic good. While interconnected by technology, we forget the value, simplicity and strength that can only be achieved by one-on-one, face-to-face interactions. In our compassion and empathy we reach across borders and walls to aid and understand one and other. These are the true keys to the Global Village. How might one unlock the core values? How can one influence a different outcome? What types of conversations are needed for a change in direction to occur? Artists always offer a different way of seeing and addressing local and global issues. Where do you see yourself in this village?

Where:

Mary-Frances and Bill Veeck Gallery Catholic Theological Union
5416 South Cornell Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60615
