About this event:
WHAT: Chicago candies come to life in fun works of art
SO WHAT: Sweet Home Chicago is Cindy Scaife’s tribute to Chicago’s rich candy history. This collection of art is a continuation of Schaife’s exploration of food and advertising mascots by creating anthropomorphic imagery that examines the origins, cultural influences, history and significance of a variety of food products. Schaife’s is greatly influenced by the art, design and advertising illustrations of the Atomic Age. Drawing heavily from the color palette and optimism of this era, Schaife’s work reflects its own nostalgia and innocence.With this exhibit, Schaife will be highlighting a selection of the candies that have become some of the most beloved and enduring sweets in the United States, all of which have Chicago roots. The opening reception will be a great opportunity to talk with Schaife while enjoying plenty of snacks and beverages (BYOB if you want beer or wine), and some awesome music courtesy of DJ Sean Doe.
NOW WHAT: This opening reception is completely free! Works will be available to purchase at the gallery beginning on February 3rd at 11am or via email starting at 2pm the same day for members of theGallery Previews List
