Protest Banner Lending Library with Aram Han Sifuentes and Cauleen Smith

FRI, Apr 7, 2017
6:30–8 pm

Floor Three, Susan and John Hess Family Theater

Artists Aram Han Sifuentes and Cauleen Smith host Protest Banner Lending Library, inspired by Smith’s banners on display in the 2017 Whitney Biennial. Visitors are invited to make their own fabric banners in a communal sewing space. The workshop is part of a series of Protest Banner Lending Library workshops that Sifuentes has organized at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum in partnership with Gallery 400, Smart Museum, Comfort Station, Chicago Cultural Center, and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The workshops have become a place where people come together in solidarity through making. 

This event is free although capacity is limited. Advance registration is required.
