LCA Special Events

First Friday: New Exhibitions & Fragile Soul
Friday, July 1, 2016 | 5-8pm (CDT)

Performances begin at 6pm

Daryl Thetford's Conversations with Chaos is a compelling body of photo collage work that is informed by the richness of the psyche, while minimalist painter, Ezra Siegel uses plaster, graphite and multiple washed to create tones, shapes and textures as shown in Moment in Time. Chicago installation artist Lucy Slivinski uses a vast array of found and recycled materials to create conceptual constructions represented in The Rebirth of How along the LCA promenade. All set to the smooth sounds of singer/songwriter band Fragile Soul, this is sure to be a First Friday you won't want to miss!
