Artists from Little City’s award-winning Center for the Arts (CFA) will be among those exhibiting their work at the Museum of Everything in London through October 25
PALATINE, Ill.—August 25, 2011
With over 200,000 expected visitors, The Museum of Everything’s Exhibition #4, will feature work from artists at Little City who have autism or other intellectual and developmental disabilities. Exhibition #4 will take place in the historic Selfridges building in London, a high-end department store that was designed by Daniel Burnham, the author of the 1909 Plan of Chicago. Artwork will take over the bottom floor and will be featured in their windows along Oxford Street, which themselves are a major tourist attraction.
