Edra Soto is a Chicago-based artist, educator, curator, and co-director of the artist-run outdoor project space THE FRANKLIN. Commissioned to build a piece for The Arts Club’s Winter Garden Project, Soto will be in conversation with art historian Daniel R. Quiles about her work. Expanding on her interest in architectural interventions (members may recall her work Manual Graft on the Mies staircase windows during last Fall’s open house), Soto brings us Screenhouse, a freestanding social structure influenced by traditional garden gazebo models and decorative patterns. Come toast the unveiling of Screenhouse and learn about the inspiration behind it.
Reception at 6:00, Gallery talk at 6:30pm.
Free and open to the public.
