Info from their site...
Public Works is a group show that features four artists who've spent years in Chicago working within the independent art and music communities: Cody Hudson, Justin Fines, Andy Mueller, and Chris Eichenseer. Longtime friends, the four men have parlayed their street-level art styles into careers as internationally recognized graphic designers. The new pieces presented in Public Works are wholly representative of the dual-influences of fine and commercial art in the artists' lives, the gallery covered in an egalitarian display of screenprints, a digital pastiche of color blocks, Greco-Roman statues, sardonic portrait photography and Dungeons and Dragons references. Accompanying the new work is a wall thick with retrospective rock posters, album covers and street images that bump and overlap, a physical manifestation of the artists' intertwined pasts and common futures.
