  4. Elmhurst College: Hispanic Heritage Exhibition - This Is Not a Fairy Tale

    September 15 - October 24 @ Founders Lounge of the Frick Center

    The work of graphic artist CHema Skandal! and artist/illustrator Diana Solís will be featured in “Este no es un cuento de hadas/This is not a fairy tale,” this year’s Hispanic Heritage Exhibition at Elmhurst College. Solís and Skandal! describe their exhibition as “a journey through the bittersweetness of humanity, personified in children.” The main body of work reflects contemporary concerns and issues through almost whimsical images of childhood, notions of home, community, migration and displacement while still maintaining the instructional and cautionary tale aspect of their fairy tale background. Other work in the exhibit exemplifies the artists' love of popular culture, graphics and music through their use of illustrations, paintings, posters and silk-screened work. “Este no es un cuento de hadas/This is not a fairy tale” can be viewed days and evenings in the Founders Lounge of the Frick Center from Monday, September 15, through Friday, October 24.
