Costume Council Annual Meeting with Scooter LaForge

Tuesday, June 14

Join us for an artful evening as the Costume Council of the Chicago History Museum‘s Executive Committee delivers Annual Meeting reports, followed by a unique presentation on the intersection of art and fashion. New York-based artist Scooter LaForge mines the canons of art history by infusing classical themes with a colorful sensibility, often using clothing as a medium for his striking images. This event is open to Costume Council members as well as all other friends and guests who wish to hear from this lively contemporary artist. Drinks and light bites will be served.

$75 individual ticket; $25 student ticket (must present valid student ID at check-in). 

Mask required except when actively eating or drinking.

Scooter LaForge is a New York-based artist who has lived in the East Village for the past 20 years. LaForge works in various media, including painting, sculpture, and drawing, and employs unorthodox techniques and striking iconic images. LaForge approaches art-making intuitively, absorbing what surrounds him and working with agility and focus—drawing from a fertile inner emotional realm and an extensive painterly vocabulary. His paintings have been shown at Howl Happening New York, Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York, the Friedrichshof Museum in Vienna, and the Spritmuseum/Absolut Art Collection in Sweden.
