Weeks of Welcome

Join us for our inaugural Café Society meeting during Weeks of Welcome. Café Society meetings are opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together and consider the impact of rights, radicals, and revolutions.



Our Origins
Inaugural Critical Encounters Café Society event!
Thursday, September 1, 4:00-6:00 p.m.
Museum of Contemporary Photography
600 S. Michigan Avenue

Our Origins is an exhibition that considers the human inclination to trace our beginnings beyond recorded history and explores our limited capacity to draw conclusive answers about the meaning of life from such efforts. The contemporary artists in this exhibition use photography, video, drawing and sculpture to reflect on natural history from a distinctly human point of view.
