Legacies: A Shorefront Legacy Center Exhibit
The Legacies exhibit celebrates the current and historical contributions of the African American communities on Chicago’s suburban North Shore. The installation consists of a sampling of three exhibit themes:
Portraits of a Community is a growing collection of 75 contemporary portraits of North Shore residents. Normal installation does not include names. It is intended to stimulate conversation between viewers and ask the question, “Do you know this person?”, “What clues in the photograph tell about them?”
North of Chicago is a series of panels that share a brief history of the Black communities in Evanston, Wilmette, Glencoe and Lake Forest.
Legacies is a growing collection of subject specific graphic panels on contemporary and historic people and organizations throughout the North Shore. The initial collection consists of 14 panels.
Join Shorefront for a reception to be held on Saturday, September 10 from 3-6pm at Open Studio Project.
