Community Creative Workshop inspired by the Living Artists

Starting September 2018, OH Art offers monthly community art workshops for children and youth allowing them to connect and be inspired by living local artists. Using art as a means of communication, the students will learn various art making techniques and create their own visual language to express themselves. 

This is a monthly program, on the 3rd Fridays of the months at OH Art Foundation, a 501c3 non profit, located inside Zhou B Art center (3rd floor). Classes will be in two groups, and run an hour and half between 7- 8:30pm. Opens to 2nd grade~8th grade in 2018.

Students must be able to attend the program without parents’ presence, and we strongly suggest bathroom use prior to the class. Parents must drop off the students 5-10 mins before the workshop begins and sign the waivers.

Spots available for the program are limited. Register for FREE to secure your children spot! Please register ONLY if the students are going to participate. info@ohartfoundation.org

Location: Zhou B Art Center, 3rd Floor, OH Art Foundation, 1029 W 35th St, Chicago, Illinois 60609

March 16, 2018  - "Emergence" produced by Volossom

"Emergence," a multimedia show presented on the March 3rd Friday, produced by InJung Oh and Volossom Studio, and curated by Jenny Chen.

Painting by: InJung Oh
Dancer: Nadine Lollino
Musician: Bob Garrett
Projection artist: Eddie Yang

EMERGENCE is about the moment of coming to life. Whether it’s a cicada’s metamorphosis after decades of waiting, or the split second when lightning strikes from a rumbling thunderstorm, it is that moment of sublimation that sets off this collaboration between the artists here, to together put up a multidimensional show to celebrate the birth of the new art space VOLOSSOM.

The artists featured in this exhibition are of a diverse range of disciplines, each contributing to the show with their own interpretation of the moment of emergence: painting, performance, sound, interactive video installation, etc.. It is a comprehensive collection aimed to expose the various instances and forms of life’s beauty; some works are lasting and always on view, such as Oh’s painting that recorded the exact moment ink hits the canvas, while some works are fleeting or responsive, and can only be experienced in real time. Such is the beauty of emergence.

Annual OH Art Student Exhibition with the selected work by 9 participating students on December, 22, 2017.
