¿Estamos…?  (We Are…?)

In observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, Side Street Studio Arts seeks entries for ¿Estamos…?  (We Are…?)


This is a call for art from any artist to answer the question of identity and place in the community and is open to your interpretation: What defines you? What defines your heritage? What is an enduring trait or characteristic of you? Do you have a feeling or sentiment in response to political, economic or social concerns? How do you see yourself in the world; how do you see yourself collectively as part of a group?

Something Wicked...

Side Street Studio Arts' 11th Annual Something Wicked; a variety of arts media whose subject matter is meant to instill a combined sense of wonder, awe and perhaps a little dread in the City of Elgin's art scene. 


This exhibition is open to the public October 6 - October 29, with an opening reception Friday, October 6 from 6-10pm.
