“Witness: The Artist’s Response”

Elephant Room Gallery presents a group exhibition of artwork relating to current political, cultural and social constructs. The gallery put out an open call and encouraged artists to submit work that personally responds to the present climate as it relates to the past, present or future. With this exhibition, we want to provide a platform for artists to be heard and make a difference. That is why each artist has chosen a non-profit to pair up with and 10% of the sales of their artwork will be donated to that organization.

We are living in an unprecedented time and with everything going on in the world, artists are consistently making work that will be the visual representation of our time. “Witness: The Artist’s Response” is a collection of works created by Chicago-based artists actively making work that bears witness to their personal interpretations on what we are all experiencing. The exhibition will include a variety of mediums and subject matter as it relates to the theme. Information on each artist and their non-profit pairing will be readily available in the gallery.

The exhibition runs March 11th through April 1st with an opening reception on Saturday, March 11th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. The gallery is located at 704 S Wabash Ave. in the South Loop of Chicago. For more information on gallery hours and other scheduled events surrounding the exhibition, visit the gallery’s website: www.elephantroomgallery.com
