An Oriental Institute-Chicago Public Schools Collaboration
April 11- May 6, 2007
April 18, 5-7:30 pm Opening Reception, Oriental Institute Museum
This exhibit is made up of interpretations and recreations of ancient Nubian art in pottery, drawing and word produced by students from Fiske School in Woodlawn. The students familiarized themselves with the material through gallery tours and interactive sessions with museum educators. During a subsequent visit, they photographed the object that that would recreate in art-making sessions at the Little Black Pearl Art and Design Center, 1060 East 47th Street, Chicago. Their final projects will be exhibited at the Oriental Institute Museum and at Little Black Pearl. The students’ participation was funded by the Joyce Foundation of Chicago.
