WorldChicago Annual Meeting & Holiday Party
"Around the World with WorldChicago & the Chicago Photography Center"
Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Chicago Photography Center, 3301 N. Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60657
Celebrate the holidays with an international photography exhibit representing photos from local and international photographers. The exhibit will include photos from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Enjoy a Mediterranean buffet dinner and international wine with WorldChicago and Chicago Photography Center members and friends.
"In selecting the work for this exhibition I wanted to find a unique voice or vision of each photographer while also creating a show that is cohesive and works as a whole. Although the theme of the exhibition could have led to distinctive landscapes, cityscapes or other iconography as the focal points of images, I felt strongly that, with our current world events, it was the people I wanted to emphasize. These artists have succeeded in taking us on a visual journey where they are exploring their own cultural curiosity, finding wonder and amazement in the scenes they witness, and mapping a path through an artistic documentation of what they have found." - Curator, Jeff Stevenson, Gallery Director, Governors State University
We will also delight in a special slideshow presentation by WorldChicago volunteers traveling through Japan, Taiwan and Vladivostok, Russia, this fall.
Cost and Registration: $30.00 per person
