Chicago Tribune – Things to Do in Chicago this weekend: Art from Agave


Art from agave: For centuries, mezcal has played an important role in Mexican heritage and gastronomy. The popularity of the distilled alcohol has recently exploded, leading to a surplus of agave leaves which create an imbalance in local ecosystems. One solution is using the discarded agave leaves to create unique works of art. This show is curated by Trine Ellitsgaard and Kiff Slemmons, and includes prints and sculptures as well as carpets, furniture and apparel. This weekend’s opening reception includes lectures, culinary demonstrations and performances related to the exhibition. “Agave!” from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 6 at Epiphany Center for the Arts, 201 S. Ashland Ave.; free, tickets at



About Epiphany Center for the Arts

Conceived with the vision to return Epiphany to a place for people to congregate, the shuttered, historic Church of the Epiphany has been preserved and adapted into the Epiphany Center for the Arts, an iconic cultural hub “For the Good of Art, Entertainment and Events.” Thoughtfully designed, the exemplary 42,000-square-foot campus located on the artsy edge of Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood boasts three distinct venues (Epiphany Hall, The Sanctuary and The Chase House) and a stunning array of amenities. The campus also features eight galleries that serve as a platform for a diverse selection of artists from Chicago and beyond. Epiphany’s exhibitions showcase the work of women, the LGBTQIA community, artists of color, and the disability culture. Epiphany’s top priority is to curate programming that is inclusive, while providing a place established artists can collaborate with emerging ones. Epiphany’s programming serves to unite community and artists alike while “Bringing Chicago Together.” Visit to learn more.
