Julia Haw: Art and Politics

As many of you know, I’m doing an oral history project about women artists in Chicago. There’s a real threat right now to shut down the Illinois Art Museums for budgetary reasons as of July 1st. Many artists will be directly impacted right now. We will all suffer a tremendous loss if these cultural institutions are shut down.

Here is the link to my other blog where Julia Haw, artist extraordinaire, talks about how the closure and other budget cuts impact her:
