HECUA Partnership for Creative Community Engagement

Pillsbury House + Theatre is thrilled to announce a new partnership with HECUA to teach a revamped Art for Social Change course. This semester-long experience immerses 11 college students in our creative community engagement efforts and uses them as a dynamic, evolving classroom. Students are applying their learning in their 200 hour internships with community partners ranging from Chicago Fire Arts Center, Alondra Cano’s office, Heart of the Beast, to our very own youth programs. The course is taught by our Artist and Community Coordinator, Molly Van Avery, and the students will be mentored by Eric F Avery, Wing Young Huie, and Mike Hoyt to help them design and execute three public art projects that explore Pillsbury House + Theatre’s values of Choice, Change, and Connection. The first project, mentored by Eric F Avery, will be an interactive exhibit in our building that illuminates the complex notion of choice. Join us for the unveiling on March 10th, 2016, from 2-3 pm, or check it out next time you are in the building.
