Annual Talkin’ Back: Chicago Youth Respond Draws a Crowd


Last Thursday, the MoCP opened its annual student exhibition Talkin’ Back: Chicago Youth Respond, showcasing work by Chicago Public School students. And what these students had to say did not fall on deaf ears: the MoCP was packed with students, their families, community activists and art lovers.

The weeklong exhibition, which closed yesterday, exhibited young artists from six of Chicago’s public schools. To see photos from the exhibition, please take a look at the Picasa page for the Center for Community Arts Partnerships (CCAP).

Talkin’ Back: Chicago Youth Respond features works by students at Crown Community Academy; Curie Metropolitan High School; Juarez Community Academy; Nicolas Senn High School; Theodore Herzl Elementary School; and Manuel Perez Jr. Elementary School. The Museum of Contemporary Photography (MoCP), Project AIM and CCAP sponsor the annual program.
