    Had a very special Sunday facilitating my first ever Touch Tour, designed specifically for visitors with limited vision to experience contemporary art through listening to an interview with the artist and touching objects related to the exhibition. It was an honor to lead a conversation with @mmmikah on the final day of her show @mcachicago. I’m going to miss seeing this painting peeking from behind the curtain on the third floor, and all of the great dialogue this work has inspired with the CPS students I’ve toured over the last few months. #chicagoworks #mikahoribuchi #touchtour (at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago)https://www.instagram.com/p/Bq6EoLHFkJH/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=kv9687h7ouy3

    Unintentional selfie in the reflection of a 10.5”x9” work on paper I’m donating to @urbangateways annual fall fundraiser “Artini”, this November 16th. Urban Gateways is the first organization to give me a chance to teach and I’ll be forever grateful for what they’ve done for me and for the young people of Chicago. #artseducation #supportthearts #acryliconpaper #urbangateways #silentauction #artcollector #chicago #teachingartists #artini #fundraiserhttps://www.instagram.com/p/Bp5YUiZF61-/?utm_source=ig_tumblr_share&igshid=1fi7si5mz5t1e
