Lillstreet Emerging Artists Lecture Series – The Spirit of the Time

“No man can surpass his own time, for the spirit of his time is also his own spirit.” — George Hegel

The philosopher Georg Hegel believed that art reflects the culture in which it was created. Artists serve as cultural barometers– the first to be aware of and to evaluate larger societal trends. The Lillstreet Art Center is proud to bring the forefront of Chicago’s contemporary art scene to you each month through the new Lillstreet Emerging Artists Lecture Series. A sampling of local filmmakers, sculptors, painters, and photographers are selected to present and discuss their work in the new Lillstreet Loft space. The 45 minute presentations will be followed by a Q and A and reception. The Lillstreet Emerging Artists Lecture Series is the project of the 2012-2013 Painting and Drawing Artist-in-Residence, Gwendolyn Zabicki.

This lecture is on a Wednesday evening each month beginning at 7pm.

Upcoming dates and topics are Feb. 20th – Photography, March 27th – Sculpture, April 24th – Painting, May 22nd – Film & Video, June 26th – Drawing.
