Housing Crisis Depicted in Exhibit

February 18, 2012

The housing industry has gone through an amazing transition over the past six years, from peaking home values in 2006 to an ever-increasing number of foreclosures today.

The Chicago real estate market was one of those hardest hit by the 2008 financial crisis and our residents have suffered. Two local artists try to capture those emotions through a new exhibit that opened this weekend entitled, “HITS CLOSE TO HOME.”

The two-person exhibit depicts the housing crisis through art and makes a powerful statement about the importance of home today.

The artists are Dan Giordan, who resides in the Chicago area and has a studio in Bartlett and Carole Hennessy, who lives and works in Chicago.

This is a HATCH Project, a juried one-year exhibition co-operative located in Chicago’s West Loop. The HATCH application process will occur again in January 2013.

The exhibit will be on display at the Chicago Artists’ Coalition Gallery, 217 N. Carpenter St., Chicago, from now through March 6. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by appointment. Call 312-491-8888 to schedule one.
