Inside MUwDV 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Made-Up with Danny Volk is a promotional platform where artists in their studios talk about life and art while doing the host’s make-up. We are currently finishing up our fourth season. Season 3 of the series focuses on artists living and working in Chicago who are invested in engaging with and within the Chicago art community. Examples of this are artists who actively make and exhibit work while simultaneously running exhibition spaces of their own, who incorporate other art practices into their work, or whose work is decidedly Chicago-focused. We are showcasing artists and individuals who promote and support our Chicago art community at large.
Host and creator Danny Volk and Producer Stephanie Anne Harris Trevor will screen 3 episodes and will talk about authorship, narcissism, and beauty products.
