Art Installations in Our Schools

One of KIPP Chicago's Whole Child Initiative priorities is to create school environments that are filled with identity affirming imagery, from posters and murals on the walls to books on the shelves. To pursue this priority, we are utilizing the artwork made for our Childrens Museum of Art and Social Justice  to populate our school spaces with more artwork made by our students. 

In 2018, the Children's Museum of Art and Social Justice exhibited Activist Soup after students from three KIPP schools collaborated to create portraits of 26 living American activists, all representing various characteristics of activism. The show was a huge success and we want to ensure the portraits can be seen by all 3,000+ KIPP students each day. We are looking to install all 26 portraits at each of our 6 campuses.

We are also looking to recreate an installation from our Afrofuturism art show, Springtime on Neptune, at all eight of our schools. This specific exhibit features a futuristic garden full of glittery flowers along with photos of Black women in space, math, science, and engineering, honoring their (often overlooked) roles in history. 

We appreciate any amount you're able to give. Thank you for helping us install these important and relevant art exhibits at all of our schools.
