COFFEE BREAK WITH ARTIST FRANCIS WHITEHEAD
Thanks to Shannon Stratton at Threewalls, we met with Frances Whitehead for some conversation and a cool drink at the Jupiter Outpost coffee shop in the West Loop. Francis is a Chicago-based artist who, among many other projects, has recently been working as an “embedded artist” with the City of Chicago. Her interests include environmental concerns and specifically, brown fields redevelopment. It was a great opportunity for us to learn more about her work, her approach as well as a chance to discuss our project.
Her website http://www.atelieraetopia.net/ lists a number of her projects including The Knowledge Lab that she has established at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she teaches.
