"Urban Sentinels" - Jason Messinger
The city of Chicago boasts over 75 neighborhoods each with their own cuisine, shopping, art, history, architecture and heritage. The common thread is they all bring an element of excitement to the senses. This collection of artwork and artisan crafts focuses on the rich colors, textures and sounds that ebb and flow as one moves about the city.

Sights, Sounds and Sensations of the City is a juried exhibition of fine artwork and artisan crafts from 27 of the 50 resident artists in the Cornelia Arts Building. Showing together for the first time in a group show outside their studios and on display across town in the State Street Gallery at Robert Morris University, bringing these distinct neighborhoods, known for their appreciation of the arts, together in celebration of Chicago Arts Month

"Amber Gears" - Jason Messinger

The Cornelia Arts Building - Where Art Works, established in 1986, is one of the largest all-artist studio buildings on Chicago's Northside. Situated in a former ice house built in 1910, the building is the working space of over fifty local artists and artisans, including sculptors, painters, photographers, ceramic artists, print-makers, jewelry designers, textile artisans, and more. Located at 1800 West Cornelia Avenue, the building rests at the border of three distinct Chicago Neighborhoods; Lakeview, Roscoe Village, and North Center.  

The State Street Gallery, established in 2004, is part of Robert Morris University - Illinois’ main campus on the southeast edge of the Loop. The gallery is an outlet for art education and cultural enrichment for the University's students, employees and the surrounding community. The building itself, located at 401 South State Street, has a significant place in Chicago’s architectural history as is was the first downtown department store opened by Sears and Roebuck, Co.
