Join us at the UICA on Friday, March 29 for a creative perspective on one of our most important lifelines: Water! Not only will we have our usual daily dose of caffeine from Ferris coffee and free breakfast, but you will also have FULL access to UICA’s newest exhibit, “Warm Water: New Works by Charles Edward Williams,” a collection of re-narrated visual works based on the event that sparked the Chicago Race Riot of 1919.
Warm Water references the human state during the riots, as well as the paralleled combination of chemical/water properties when hot and cold elements are combined.
Come hear our inspiring talk on water and browse the gallery! We hope to see you there.
