#CoolArt: Thinkspace Gallery & Vertical Gallery presents 'LAX/ORD'

Thinkspace Gallery & Vertical Gallery presents 'LAX/ORD', a group art exhibition featuring 12" x 12" small format works by nearly one hundred individual artists, and is broadly curated by Thinkspace’s co-founder Andrew Hosner.

The exhibition is meant to capture the diversity and dynamism of the steadily growing New Contemporary Art Movement, with its roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art, and graffiti, bringing the largest representative cross-section of its burgeoning international community and connecting the West Coast art scene to that of the MidWest.

In addition to the gallery display, a site specific mural collaboration between Ghostbeard and Patch Whisky will be presented in tandem with the exhibition.

Opening reception is on Saturday September 3 from 6-10 pm at Vertical Gallery, 1016 N. Western Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60622, and will be on display until September 24.
