About Dwight White

Chicago based multi-media artist Dwight White straddles the line between fine art, sociology and experiential design. Raised in Houston TX, he has built his artistic practice in Chicago, IL. 

White has been inspired by the ways in which one can capture truth visually to engage and connect with people. He loves the challenge of taking the viewer beyond just seeing the art – he believes they should feel it. His confidence and commitment to his craft is inspiring as he embraces his function in society to document the history of connected cultural experiences through art.

White discovered the intersection of artistic experiences, consumer insights and sports while attending Northwestern University as a student athlete. Nuanced Black human behavior and personal experiences are prevalent subjects throughout his work. He utilizes insights to inspire, innovate and explore relevant material with culture through creativity. Further, he is focused on creating collections and public works such as murals that reach the greater community and more importantly, the next generation. White is the creator of Something I Can Feel (SICF) an immersive art driven experience designed to inspire, uplift and empower communities through visual art, music and thoughtful programming. The annual public exhibition honors and supports Chicago’s elite creative community prioritizing social connectivity, mental health and wellness. 

About Curators Gone Rogue

Susan Aurinko and Susan Blackman watched as brick-and-mortar galleries closed and decided to do something about it. They joined forces during COVID, branding themselves as Curators Gone Rogue, to make sure Chicago artists still had venues to expose their work in. From pop-ups to gallery shows, the pair, with over fifty years of combined art experience, has been responsible for a dozen exhibitions in various venues. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to curate an artist we’ve been dying to show at a space as fascinating as Epiphany!

Susan Aurinko, an artist herself,  has curated over 250 exhibitions, at FLATFILE galleries, the gallery she founded and directed for nine years, and in a variety of other and venues including IIT, Chicago Photography Center, and created exhibitions for both the Japanese and Danish governments. Aurinko also provided the art for the Prudential Building lobbies for a decade and curated the rotating exhibitions for the Union League Club of Chicago from 2008 until 2020.  She is responsible for Lucent, in the John Hancock Lobby, and created several corporate collections throughout the Chicago Area.

Susan Blackman has been involved in all aspects of the art business world for thirty-five years; from managing five galleries, owning her own gallery for seven years, and as the principal of Art Advisory, Ltd. for over twenty years. She has procured and managed collections for many large corporations including Deloitte, William Blair, LLC., and Capital One, JLL, to name a few. Blackman has a deep commitment to helping artists develop their entrepreneurial art practices through the group and individual business development seminars she has offered for the past 5 years.
