Night Visions returns this fall with after-hours visits and live demonstrations at exceptional artists’ studios! Treat yourself to an adventurous evening with Sarah Packer to meet with artists, explore their work, discover their artistic journeys, and experience a live demonstration in the artists' chosen medium.
On October 20, spend the evening in the Evanston studio of sculptor, community artist, and nonviolence educator Indira Freitas Johnson. Find out how Indira has made an impact on the Chicago-area art world and beyond with her public sculptures and intimate community collaborations. Discover what motivated Indira’s white buddha head sculptures, from a series titled Ten Thousand Ripples, that can be found in ten Chicago area neighborhoods including Evanston. Indira’s work was recently installed in the collection of sculptures at the Nathan Manilow Sculpture Park at Governor’s State University. Born in India and living in the United States for many years, Indira will share the cultural inspirations behind her work and explain the process she uses to put together her three-dimensional pieces.
