Colin Ward Memorial Potluck Conversation Series Thursday, April 17, 6 - 7:30 pm Dinner will take place inside the art installation The Beast by John Preus

Who is Colin Ward? Special guest speaker, Bart Schultz, will lead a short map-making exercise that will provide an entry into a conversation about who Colin Ward was and why we should know about him. Bring your thoughts, your ideas, and food or drink to share during the presentation.

The potluck kicks off a series taking place every Thursday until August 3 as part of the program for the exhibition The Beast.

The Beast program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.

Museum of Contemporary Photography "Home Truths: Photography and Motherhood" April 18 - July 13

This exhibition will aim to challenge long-held stereotypes and sentimental views of motherhood by addressing issues such as gender roles, domesticity, the body and the identity of individuals within the family unit. The work of the nine artists tends to be autobiographical in focus and sits within the documentary genre. Large in both scale and scope many of the projects span over several years with some still on-going. "Home Truths" is curated by Susan Bright.
