Northwestern MFA Open Studios
Sunday, March 1st, 3pm - 7pm

We are ten artists currently occupying a series of former geological laboratories in a brown brick building dating to sometime in the early 20th century. If geology is a combination of material exploration, unstable classifications, archival scratchings and alchemical ambition, then it might provide an appropriate foil for the kinds of activity taking place there now.

We hope you will join us on March 1st, when we will offer our artwork, our hospitality, our soft furnishings, and an array of snacks and warming beverages.
