Student Diversity and Inclusion (SDI) is excited to kick off the celebration of Black History Month by partnering with the Department of Exhibitions, Performance and Student Spaces (DEPS) for our second Artist Talk.

All are invited to view Norman W. Long art exhibition, "Calumet in Dub", on display in The Glass Curtain Gallery. Afterward, Long will share what inspired his work and how their identity has influenced their art.

"Calumet in Dub" consists of an 8-channel speaker installation resulting from Norman W. Long's research-based work delving into the ecology and soundscapes of the Southeast Side of Chicago along the Calumet and Little Calumet River area. Long has investigated how housing, labor, and environmental activism has coalesced in this location. The population demographics, ecological information, pollution statistics as well as direct field recordings from the Calumet region provide the raw data that Long utilizes to create sonic experiences.


5:00PM – 5:30PM Viewing exhibition prior to artist talk, Glass Curtain Gallery
