    "Around the Corner" Art Exhibit May 16

    An Art Exhibit by Northwest Side Artists Who Are Coming of Age

    Teen artists who are 'around the corner' from their adult lives will exhibit works for one day only on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at Artorium, Inc., an arts center at 5719 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago. The exhibit is free and open to the public from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

    Northwest Arts Connection (NAC), a grassroots organization dedicated to supporting Northwest Side Chicago artists and to making their work accessible to its residents, presents this celebration of artists who are coming of age.

    The artists' pieces look back on significant life experiences. As one artist commented, 'My journey pot shows moments in my life that have shaped me into the person I am today.'

    Students from two area high schools are participating in the exhibit—Luther North College Prep and Lydia Urban Academy.
