The Chicago Cultural Center Artists in Residence are selected by a panel of esteemed jurors following a competitive review of nearly 200 qualified applicants. Artist in Residence Aram Han Sifuentes is committed to the social practice of working with diverse communities, particularly immigrants and refugees, in order to provide insight into their everyday world. With collaborator Verónica Casado Hernández, she will teach the skills necessary to create protest banners from cloth. The public is invited to drop in to work on collective banners and make one to take away or contribute to a lending library. They will also maintain a lending library where visitors can check out a completed banner to use. Large groups are encouraged to make an appointment.
