Rick Valicenti’s exhibition US, Ark of the Archetypes: The Politics of Projection has been getting a lot of attention! Beyond the Thirst blog, you can read about our event on the Chicago Design Museum website, or hop on over to Design Applause to read their article about it! We are also listed on creativepulsechicago.com, your source for all of the best art and design events in the windy city.
But it’s more than the press that love us. Here’s what some designers are saying.
I just by mistake saw your exhibit. Oh man. You are so cool. Congrats on that. Powerful. [And] its arranged in the shape of the US! Just like the logo. My god, too cool!!!!!!

And our Canadian friend, Robert Appleton said to Rick:
hey, you’re kinda amazing…
US, Ark of the Archetypes: The Politics of Projection, explores 50 of the personas that the president embodies when he represents our nation. Stop by and see it during gallery hours, 10am-6pm Tuesday through Friday, through November 17th.
Better yet, be there with Rick on November 5th for a pre-election event starting at 6pm.
