CBPA Gallery Show Documentation by InterArts MFA

Images from the colorful and entertaining exhibition at the Center for Book and Paper Arts Gallery, Word on the Street: Image, Language, Signage, are now available to view on the CBPA Facebook page. These bright and expansive shots were taken the week after the show’s opening by InterArts MFA Leo Selvaggio. “The work in this show is best viewed in person, due to the lively colors, use of light, and large sizes of the pieces,” says CBPA curator Jessica Cochran. “But considering how difficult it can be to represent the gallery experience in 2D photographs, Leo has done an outstanding job capturing the feeling and movement of the works in the installation, and the relationships and meanings in their interplay.”


The exhibition has only recently opened, and will be on display through August 10. The Center for Book and Paper Arts Gallery offers visitors to Chicago’s south loop an oasis of quiet escape from the summer heat, crowds, and noise at street level. For more information and gallery hours, click here.
