Artists’ Atlas: Mapping Their Journey at the State Street Gallery, showcases the work of nine Chicago artists, who explore and map location, memory, and identity in this multi-medium art show. By mapping places, charting their recalled past, and tracing the elements of the self, the nine artists present a visual atlas of our interior worlds. 


Artists include Kass Copeland, Deanna Krueger, Alan Emerson Hicks, Jason Messinger, Matt Nichols, Emily Rapport, Jordan Scott, Marya Veeck and Joey Wozniak.
Curated by Jason Messinger, with Gallery Director Shelley LaMantia Wright, in conjunction with Robert Morris University.
 The artists’ unique perspectives and unconventional approaches to materials are reflected in a variety of both two and three dimensional forms. The show includes paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, tile murals, assemblage constructions, and installations.
The artists utilize materials as varied as paint, ink, canvas, paper, wood, ceramic, photographs, prints, text, found objects, plastic packaging, historical images, star charts, recycled medical diagnostic film, and cancelled postage stamps.
