Chicago's Mess Hall is now 5 years old. Mess Hall is an independent art center in Rogers Park that provides space for art shows, talks, workshops, and community based events. They're celebrating their anniversary today with an exhibit of their show archives as well as proposals for their next 5 years.
The Justseeds 2008 Portfolio Project will be on display. Justseeds is a politically active screenprint collective that produces artwork championing social issues. The amount of quality work they put out is amazing.
There'll be work by Burtonwood and Holmes and Bloc Artist Studios will also have their This is Not a Truck mobile gallery parked outside the space.
And on top of all that there'll be piñatas, a photobooth, an Art Swap where you can exhange your extra handmade stuff for other people's handmade stuff, and DJ Aay Preston-Myint will be spinning as well.
Everything kicks off at 7pm tonight!
