WHAT: IL NXT: Illustration Next at Case[werks]

Curated by Whitney Sherman, director of the new M.F.A. in Illustration Practice at MICA, IL NXT is an exhibition of illustration practice today. With our daily lives awash in technology, we crave handmade items as our cultural narratives play out on clothing, personal items and environments. This show—with works by MICA alumni Lauren Castillo, Emily Flake, Pamela Hobbs, Colin Johnson, Elena Johnston, Daniel Krall, Alyssa Nassner, Jess Neil, Jessica O’Brien, Jill Popowich, Joey Potts, Brian Rea, Whitney Sherman, Gina Triplett and Alex Uyeno—represents some of illustration’s new storytelling models interwoven with time-honored traditional methods.

The exhibition is sponsored by the MICA Alumni Association, MICA’s Office of Research and in partnership with Case[werks], a national supplier of archival exhibit furnishings and gallery products located in the heart of the Station North Arts District. www.casewerks.com or http://www.facebook.com/casewerks
