Signs of Change
Friday, October 30th, 2020 - Saturday, January 9th, 2021
2020 has been a year of growing pains. What comes from those pains? Change.
With a country divided, we have seen groups of people show up to stand up for what they truly believe in, even in the times of this pandemic. Freedom of speech and fighting against injustice and racism is more important.
Gallery of Contemporary Mosaic (GoCM) presents the exhibition Signs of Change, which presents wall-to-wall visuals of protest signs, cartoons and mixed media that have been used in demonstrations around the world in this historic year.
This exhibition intends to create a space for all these voices to be seen and heard, and for a discourse to happen, facilitating the possibility of different viewpoints to be understood.
This exhibition is being co-curated by Evanston-based letter press printmaker, Ben Blount, who uses the art of letter press printing to explore questions of race and identity.
Class Act 2021
Friday, January 15th - Saturday, March 13th
The Gallery of Contemporary Mosaics is proud to exhibit the works of twenty-eight past and present students of The Chicago Mosaic School for Class Act 2021. This juried exhibition features students working at all levels of experience, who have studied at CMS from 2005 - present.
This exhibition showcases the variety of approaches to contemporary mosaic works from local, nation and international artists and reflects the expertise of our dedicated faculty and staff that have made The Chicago Mosaic School the premier center for Mosaic Arts Education in the United States. Through classes, workshops and Visiting Artist Seminars, these artists have utilized exemplary conceptual and technical excellence in varied approaches and materials. We encourage our students to explore their artistic voices and discover their potential through the medium of mosaic.
