Hello Beautiful!

Weaving Community

Lynette Kalsnes brings us the story of a new exhibit at the National Museum of Mexican Art tries to put a human face on immigration. It's called A Declaration of Immigration, and it features photos, paintings and multi-media projects from several ethnic groups. As part of the exhibit, some Chicagoans are telling their families' stories, by sewing them in muslin and ribbon. A Declaration of Immigration continues at the National Museum of Mexican Art until September 7th.

Plus, Dawoud Bey talks about the new exhibition Are We There Yet? at the Hyde Park Art Center.

And Dan Bindert talks with Alison Ruble. Her new CD, This is a Bird, is just out on the Origin label. It's a collection of eleven modern interpretations of classic standards, jazz & pop songs.
