About the Event
“Creatin’ Community” is the fourth activation of PTPT and will be facilitated by Kai Key, curator and featured artist the exhibition. As this Communal ArtSpace exhibition comes to a close, let’s bask in one another’s company drop-in style! Community art making is community power. We will continue making on a large canvas and of course, collage will be involved. To make the visuals and experience more dynamic, there will be more experimental materials available–Kai’s favorite.
There’s a collective energy that’s channeled when we are all creating together and we want you to be Creatin’ Community as you create in community. The opening activation was so amazing and we’d love to see you all again, plus a friend!
Recall the title and theme of this show. What does it mean to understand yourself and others? What are some ways you can deepen your connection with yourself and expand upon your relationships, or release them, as you see fit? How can art and your own creativity play a part in your growth and expansion?

This workshop is brought to us by @thee_artspace as part of "Communal ArtSpace" / "Putting the Pieces Together" which is in full effect, June 1st-July 2nd as an activated exhibition and community art project. Centering BIPOC queer and trans creatives and making history in art is the goal and we want YOU to be a part of it. Being a creative can be as simple as claiming it. We want folks to claim their power, make their mark, and contribute to our collective works of art.
“Putting the Pieces Together” led by @thee_artspace , explores identity and the role that art plays in how we understand one another. This Communal ArtSpace exhibition was inspired by multidisciplinary artist, Learenna Reynolds, who described the process of collage as “putting a puzzle together.” Centering collage work from some of Chicago’s most amazing collage artists, we deepen connection between ourselves and within ourselves to piece together our life experiences.
There will be 5 activations for this exhibition in which some of our exhibiting artists will facilitate a workshop and guide community through a visual art collaboration.
Be ready to join us, contribute to our community canvas, and be the creative that you are.
Communal ArtSpace is an activated exhibition and community art project where both the audience and the artists are at the center of the art show.
Each Communal ArtSpace has a theme and associated medium.
Artists get the opportunity to interact more with the community while viewers get the chance to make art and learn from the artists. Collaborative art made during Communal ArtSpace will be presented at the end of the year.
