Project Onward

Scars & Stripes

A Portrait of American Life

Time & Location

Jul 19, 2024, 6:00 PM – Aug 10, 2024, 5:00 PM

Project Onward, 1200 W 35th St 4th floor, Chicago, IL 60609, USA

About the event

On the precipice of what is shaping up to be a major pivotal moment in America’s history, Project Onward artists explore their relationship with this country and things that feel uniquely “American” to them – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Lovingly painted homages to fast food chains sidle up next to outlandish glitter renderings of political bigwigs. Backyard barbecues share space with police cars engulfed in flames. Representing the experiences and opinions of an extremely diverse group of American citizens, this exhibition aims to capture just what it is that makes this country so incredibly inspiring and so devastatingly disappointing. This is our country at its most flawed and fabulous, scars and stripes on display for all to see.

Join our opening reception on July 19th to kick off this star-spangled spectacle, or visit our gallery where the exhibition will be on view until August 10th.
