Uncommon Studios
May 8, 2010, Studio viewing 2:00pm - 3:00pm,
Panel discussion 3:00pm - 4:30pm
Little Black Pearl
1060 E. 47th Street, Chicago

Little Black Pearl Workshop and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago invite you to this afternoon of studio viewing and discussion. For centuries, artists have relied on community resources and shared workshop spaces to create. This program showcases how the place and context of where artists make art interconnects with the work itself. Starting at 2pm, LBP resident artist, Immy Mellin, and other LBP artists take us on a tour of the studios. At 3pm, artist duo Derric Clemmons and Luz Castillo along with sculptors Jason Middlebrook and Milton Mizenberg explain how their creative collaborations with art institutions and community spaces have influenced their work. This discussion is moderated by Heidi Hickman, Program Director at LBP.

Derric Clemmons and Luz Castillo form the artist duo behind the studio "Coco Mocha - Art wear without rules."

Milton Mitzenberg is a sculptor whose home studio in Chicago's Oakland neighborhood serves both as a space for making and display. Mitzenberg is using the LBP studios to teach, create, and expand his practice into an even more public and communal arena.

Jason Middlebrook is an artist based in Hudson, NY who is producing a commission at Little Black Pearl with assistance from an LBP youth apprentice for the upcoming Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago exhibition Alexander Calder and Contemporary Art: Form, Balance, Joy.
