Langston Allston speaks with WGN

One of our current artists in residence, Langston Allston, recently spoke with The Cornerstore on WGN about his life growing up in Champaign, Illinois and how music and comics shaped his identity, gentrification in New Orleans and Chicago, his current series Radiant City, and his partnership with the Museum.

You can listen to his interview here.

One of Langston's pieces, Modern Kitchens, is currently on display as a part of our exhibition, History Lessons: Everyday Objects from Chicago Public Housing.
