This July Jen and I had the extreme pleasure of collaborating with fellow artist Leah Gipson and our good friends at Revival Arts Collective to put on Revival Bronzeville. The first in many happenings focused on historically ignored communities in Chicago engaging with artists. She and I along Leah Gipson have developed an installation piece that functions as a physical space to engage with community members. The installation is entitled Project Lot#: Bronzeville it takes place off the southeast corner of 47th and King Drive. The Revival is the first in a series of events coming down the line from RAC. A still and link to our footage and the Revival Artists Collective after the jump.

Will Nicholson solo exhibition TIME IS MONEY ART

5052 N. Troy Chicago, IL

Albert Einstein once said, "Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.” At the end of this destructive era of waste and corruption it is time to shift the dominant materialist paradigm of "time is money” to that of "time is art.” The latter is a philosophy that Nature is intrinsically beautiful and that all endeavors should ultimately result in the beautification of the world we live in. Every moment holds an opportunity to create a beautiful experience. I have made it my hobby to symbolically illustrate this concept... Turning trash into treasure and time into art, I have made sculptures from decaying urban artifacts and ‘paintings’ out of live plants. Enter vibrantly cacophonic yet harmonic and playful mishmashes of contemporary culture re-appropriated, re-contextualized and immortalized in the form of artwork for the infinite appreciation of the intricate and tantalizing graphics that grace our garbage, in a post-consumer setting.
For more info check our links page for Will's blog. He has some great work especially the live plant paintings. He a fellow School of the Art Institute alum like RP founder Eve Sanford. Support Chicago's own!
