We are pleased to welcome Chicagoland art therapist and portrait artist Anthony Porter as the next to be featured in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. His show Civil Rights (The 1960s) is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library where you can catch it through January 2. Influenced by his studies at the School of the Art Institute, Porter’s exhibit features two dozen imaginative portraits of civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, and the Kennedys. You can meet Mr. Porter at a closing reception on Tuesday, December 29th at 7 pm, and make sure to visit Off the Shelf later in the month for a featured interview with the artist himself. Stay tuned.
