Our Life

Nick Adam will unveil a series of artworks titled, Our Life, tonight in the Loop.  Displayed in the windows of the abandoned Century Building, Nick's series is a set of words composed of cut paper and grommets.  Based on a font that Nick developed, each letter has arms and legs that work to connect each letter.

Over the past several years Nick has created various sets of public work rooted in explorations of letter form and compounded with social and political commentary.  I've enjoyed viewing and coming across these pieces in the streets of Chicago.  This current piece is described by Nick as "...a celebration, for all that we do and all that we are."

This window installation will have an opening reception scheduled at the same time as the Worth-While art show a block east and the Go Do Good photography show a few blocks north so you can visit all three at the same time.
