Snow City Arts: Erasures

Dec 4, 2012 – Jan 17, 2013

Hours:
Monday–Friday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Snow City Arts transforms time in the hospital into time with the arts for young patients during treatment. Exhibited here are thirteen works by youth at John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital in Chicago who used the May 2011 issue of Poetry as source material for their own erasure poems.
