“HOODSY” is a visual art exhibition featuring The CHUP, JASSO, and NACO from the south side of Chicago.
In this current collection, artwork reveals the varied levels of attraction for things that are a bit “HOODSY.” The exhibition displays the work of three artists with a parallel interest in creation and locations.
The artwork will reflect narratives, symbols, and memories of the artists in regards to the varied communities. The three artists have been connected by an interest in working in urban locations and responding to creative aesthetics associated with them.
The prolific artists have worked on curating, organizing, programing, and creating art projects in the hoods of Blue Island, Gage Park, La Villita/Little Village, Midway, Pilsen, and South Chicago. Artists have a background in murals, street art, screen printing, painting, drawing, teaching, and a general focus on visual art.
