About this event:

Created by Julian Ramirez

4912 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL 60625, USA

WHAT: A touring exhibition is a collaboration between Chav Printmaking Studio (Iran), Milano Printmakers Associazione Culturale (Milan) and Chicago Printmakers Collaborative.

SO WHAT: This beautiful exhibit will feature 130 mini prints created by CPC, Italian, and Iranian printmakers. The prints take influence from the Persian New Year which is called Nowruz; now meaning new, and ruz meaning day. “Nowruz is about the renewal of nature, and for 3000 years, it has been celebrated at the exact moment of the vernal equinox. Iranians decorate using the seven symbols of life and vitality called Haftsin. These symbols crop up in many of the exhibited prints: Apple, Sumac, Vinegar, Garlic, Dried Oleaster, Samanu (sweet pudding made from wheat germ), and Sabzeh (wheat sprouts).

NOW WHAT: Head over and enjoy these great prints in person!
