Artists’ Atlas: Mapping Their Journey at the State Street Gallery, showcases the work of nine Chicago artists, who explore and map location, memory, and identity in this multi-medium art show.

Curated by Jason Messinger, with Gallery Director Shelley LaMantia Wright, in conjunction with Robert Morris University.

The artists utilize materials as varied as paint, ink, canvas, paper, wood, ceramic, photographs, prints, text, found objects, plastic packaging, historical images, star charts, recycled medical diagnostic film, and cancelled postage stamps.
