@ TERRAIN NORTHWEST, multiple locations
Saturday, November 4th, 2023 | 2-6PM
EXTRA Projects is pleased to invite you to the Avondale Art Walk – a community celebration with art making workshops for Project 011: TERRAIN NORTHWEST on Saturday, November 4th | 2-6PM. TERRAIN NORTHWEST is curated as part of the Terrain Biennial. The outside art show is an exploration of how the Terrain philosophy of art in unexpected places could translate into streets within Logan Square and Avondale. Much of the space is more urban with fewer front yards for the types of installations that have become synonymous with Terrain. TERRAIN NORTHWEST features art in abandoned lots, sides of buildings and storefront windows along Milwaukee Avenue from the Diversey/Kimball/Milwaukee intersection to Belmont. Installations on view through November 15th, 2023.
The Avondale Art Walk is a self guided walk along about a mile of Milwaukee and adjacent Diversey Ave to see each installation. 3 of the sites will have free art making workshops and 1 will have an open reception for the work installed. In each case folks will be able to meet the artists who made the installations.
