The Englewood Art Fair will celebrate the artisans and craftspeople of Englewood from 12pm-5pm at Hamilton Park Cultural Center. Come experience Live Jazz Music, Free Food, Art, and a Pop Up African Art Store presented by the Hamilton PAC plus more!
Featured Artist: Tonika Johnson
Tonika Johnson is a photographer from Englewood. She received her BA in Journalism & Photography from Columbia College Chicago in 2003 and her MBA from National-Louis University in 2005. Her photography project, From the INside, in its sincerest form, is an act of love to the community she was raised in and returned to as an adult. Being an “insider” of Englewood, she considers this project a self-portrait of Englewood’s spirit which, also serves as a counter narrative to the stereotype of Englewood residents being criminals or impoverished victims of violence.
Courtesy of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), Tonika Johnson will be giving away free 8×10 prints at the Englewood Art Fair! Bring the whole family!!
