John Preus' ADAPTATION at The University of Chicago!

Join the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and the Smart Museum of Art in celebrating the opening of John Preus: Adapation, a site-specific installation at the Keller Center staging reclaimed furniture from closed public schools.

With Adaptation, Preus builds on his past work and a residency at the Smart in order to create a functional installation that will be activated by the staff, students, policy-makers and faculty at Harris in collaboration with community members, artists, architects, educators, and others. The opening reception will be from 4PM to 7PM.
