March Exhibition at Oak Park Art League

Oak Park Art League is hosting an opening reception for their open-to-all March Exhibition on March 9th from 7pm - 9pm at 720 Chicago Ave, Oak Park IL. This event is open to all ages and is free of admission charges.  

from their website:

"The history of art is largely a history of apprenticeship. This exhibition asks our OPAL instructors past and present to tell the story of their own lineages. Where possible we have asked their mentors, or collectors of their mentors to loan original works to hang next to their own. While this exhibition starts in the Carriage House Gallery, It extends well beyond as a selection of our teachers offer a series of museum tours specifically designed to contextualize their own very personal artistic development."
