I’m thrilled to announce I have a solo show up at the Harold Washington Library in Chicago. That’s this one:
“You Oughta Get a Medal for That!” Metalwork by Elaine Luther
January 6, 2012 – February 24, 2012
Harold Washington Library Center
North Upright Exhibit Case, Eighth Floor
400 S. State Street
“You oughta get a medal for that!” People say it, but does anyone ever actually make the medal? Artist and metalsmith Elaine Luther has been making medals. It started with a misread call for artists. It said make a pin to show your secret identity—Luther made a medal about her “secret identity” as a mother of a child who had died. Only later did she realize the call for artists was for an identity you wish you had. There will be an Artist Talk at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, February 18 in the Art Reference Room on the eighth floor of the Harold Washington Library Center.
While you’re there, check out all the great exhibits at the library.
