The Reader Highlights SUGs’ 20th Anniversary Party
On January 31 the Chicago Reader showcased #figureground by alumni Vincent Uribe (BFA and BA 2013) and Chelsea Culp (BFA and BA 2007), part the Student Union Galleries’ (SUGS) 20th anniversary event Party. The installation features an interchangeable series of photo backdrops crafted by more than 30 SAIC artists. “Perfect for the Instagram generation: style your look, go to the party, pick a backdrop, strike a pose, and share the moment,” says writer Isa Giallorenzo. SUGs continues its 20th anniversary celebration with After Party, a curated exhibition of student work at the LeRoy Neiman Center Gallery from February 12–28. The opening reception takes place on February 17 from 4:00–6:00 p.m.
