In support of Intuit's Art Design Chicago exhibition, Chicago Calling: Art Against the Flow, Intuit is proud to present the Art Against the Flow Summit. The Summit will provide a forum for the various constituents of outsider art--artists, educators, curators, dealers, collectors, students and general appreciators--to contribute to the conversations, panels and programming surrounding the role of place in the artistic output from a wide spectrum of artists.

6–9 PM
Summit After Party
Aron Packer Projects and Project Onward partner together for a final event to celebrate the Art Against the Flow Summit! The paired exhibitions feature artwork from the 1980's through the present, and address issues of disability, the urge to create no matter what, and the manifestation of the visionary world of each unique artist. Project Onward presents After Party: Works on paper by Tony Davis and Pure Imagination: Works by Project Onward Artists. Aron Packer Projects presents Body and Soul / Charles Steffen / works on paper and Hearts and Brains / Iris Adler / machines and sculpture.
