What’s good Chicago? Make it out to the ‘Between the Folds’ film screening at Morningstar for a documentary viewing you won’t soon forget on Thursday, March 23. If documentaries aren’t your thing, head over to the Art Institute for a panel discussion on art and activism featuring Rebecca Zorach, professor in art and art history at Northwestern University, Trish Kelly, associate professor of critical and cultural studies at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and Chicago artist, curator, and community facilitator Faheem Majeed. Spend your morning on Friday, March 31 with artist Leah Ball at Braintree and head on over to Lost Arts for the opening party for ‘Great Ideas of Humanity: One of a Series’ show. Stay tuned for the details on April’s #TDKtuesdays event and more coming from TDK this spring!
