Chicago has made its mark on the American landscape. Home to Barack Obama, Da Bears, Al Capone, the taste sensation that is the Chicago-style hot dog, Wrigley chewing gum, Sears Tower and lots and lots of wind, Chicago is a metropolitan powerhouse. So is Houston. And H-town tells Chi-town to BRING IT! DiverseWorks partners with Chicago’s oldest alternative art space, the Hyde Park Art Center, to showcase some of the best artists in the South and the Midwest through an exhibit exchange of the 2008 Artadia awardees. Houston represents in Chicago and Chicago represents in Houston in this cross-country cultural showdown. Featured artists include: Melika Bass, Juan Angel Chavez, Jim Duignan, Theaster Gates, Kelly Kaczynski, Dutes Miller & Stan Shellabarger, Kim Piotrowski.
