About the event

Join us on January 20th to kick off and celebrate our first exhibition at the Stony Island Arts Bank in 2022!

'Is where it's at!', a special exhibition from Chicago-based Nigerian American artist Adeshola Makinde, is presentation of new and existing works drawing upon the celebrated EBONY and JET Magazines, paying homage to the Johnson Publishing Company’s reign in documenting, celebrating and amplifying all aspects of Black life in America.

This exhibition is part of a yearlong collaboration between Rebuild Foundation and Anthony Gallery to spotlight the importance of Black space, Black art and Black artists at the Stony Island Arts Bank in 2022. Anthony Gallery will partner with Rebuild Foundation to provide a platform for emerging and established contemporary artists working in the field of African and Black American identity.

The exhibition will be open to the public Thursday through Sunday at the Stony Island Arts Bank from 12 PM to 6 PM from January 21 until February 27. In order to protect the health and safety of our community, guests will be asked to wear a mask, social distance and provide proof of vaccination in accordance with City mandates and CDC guidelines.
