Identity and Youth CPS Lives and Expo Chicago Panel

Melissa Ann Pinney (Artist, CPS Lives) and Cecil McDonald Jr. (Artist, CPS Lives). Moderated by Jacqueline Terrassa (Woman’s Board Endowed Chair of Museum Education, Art Institute of Chicago)

Expo Chicago and CPS Lives present a discussion featuring artists Cecil McDonald Jr. and Melissa Ann Pinney, two residents within the CPS Lives program whose work explores the intersections of representation as part of their ongoing projects. The two artists will discuss their residencies and their results – images that explore identity and youth – that blur the lines between the artistic and the academic.
