McKinley Park Branch is hosting a traveling exhibit and several exciting events from October through December. The exhibit, From Generation to Generation: Folk Art of Illinois, tells the stories of artists and musicians, highlighting art forms representing a variety of traditions, such as Chinese calligraphy, Mexican murals and Japanese taiko drumming.
Every artist is part of a larger tradition, and their stories prompt the question, "What will I pass along?"
