The Chicago Tribune features the work of SAIC alum and former faculty Jackie Kazarian (MFA 1989). Kazarian’s painting Armenia is part of Project 15, a collection of artwork and studies created to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Armenian genocide. The result of a two-year project of studying ancient maps and Armenian illuminated manuscripts, the painting is intended to be a memorial to Kazarian’s family and a reminder of lessons still to be learned. The painting is on display at Mana Contemporary art center in Pilsen through May 29.
