First Saturdays at Mana

  • Mana Contemporary Chicago 2233 South Throop Street Chicago, IL, 60608 United States (map)

"Saturday, February 4 marks the beginning of our 2017 First Saturdays at Mana, featuring special programming and select open studios. This month, we are proud to launch the first installment of Five Works, a monthly project series organized by La Keisha Leek, Mana Chicago's Exhibitions and Community Programs Manager, that showcases 5 new and/or recent works from emerging Chicago artists in the Mana Chicago office space. This February features the work of Angela Davis Fegan, an artist who crafts handmade objects as a way to reflect upon the ephemeral and intangible nature of digital media.

The café will be serving complimentary coffee, wine, and bagels supplied by local Pilsen sandwich shop, Andorkas, and donuts from Front Room Donuts.
