Warm Water Exhibition

When: February 07-March 27
Location: Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery  |  Kimball Arts building
Cost: Free & open to the public

Warm Water is a collection of re-narrated visual works based on the event that sparked the Chicago Race Riot of 1919. These works unfold the story involving five Black teens, and what reportedly caused the death of Eugene Williams in Lake Michigan on the South Side of Chicago. The works document and shed light on the marginalizing oppositions the teens faced during the fragile height of racial sociopolitical conditions nationwide. This day, July 27, 1919, became the tipping point, and as a result, led to a string of violent race riots across the United States.
