Expanding the Filipino American identity through art

The “More Than Lumpia” exhibition will be at The Catacombs at Epiphany Center for the Arts from October 6 to November 17.

“More Than Lumpia” aims to explore Filipino American identity and challenge stereotypes by showcasing the work of artists in that space. This exhibition works to expand what it means to be Filipino American and not be boiled down to one dish or a one-dimensional view of who a Filipino is.

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.
