This month, in coordination with the NCECA ceramics show, many spaces have traditional and contemporary ceramics exhibitions. We don't always mention crafts, but here we will.
C3:Initiative in St Johns has a good history of artwork with a social change theme. Tonight they host work by Portland's Socially Engaged Craft Collective. Social Objects includes interactive projects, performances and games, all ceramic.
There is a huge list nceca.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/2017-Exhibitions-by-area-3.13.17.pdf with many concentrated on Friday from 6PM-9. Most of the shows can be seen over the month.
The show www.c3initiative.org/social-objects-nceca-exhibition.html opens tonight at 7326 N Chicago. 5PM-9 Free
