Today In The Culture, October 28, 2021:  The Art of Agave


Agave In The Gallery

Epiphany Center for the Arts is launching “Agave!,” a group exhibition featuring artwork made from agave leaves discarded during the production of the mezcal spirit. The show runs Saturday, November 6 through April 9, 2022. The collection is curated by Trine Ellitsgaard and Kiff Slemmons, and ranges from prints and sculptures to carpets, furniture and apparel. “The artists featured in ‘Agave!’ have responded to this environmental crisis by transforming these discarded leaves into fantastic pieces of design,” said Epiphany’s director of art and programming Aaron Baker. “They are participating in a virtuous cycle of turning a problem into an opportunity, of turning waste into beautiful, timeless objects. We are thrilled to be able to showcase their innovative artwork.” The opening reception is Saturday, November 6, 6pm-9pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public; tickets here.




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.
