It’s said that If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older. Certainly, everyone who attended the KID’N US ART EXHIBIT maintained their youth. As the attendees walked through the exhibit they reminisced on their childhood. What’s The Word had the pleasure of attending the exhibit hosted by Inzo. And I’m compelled to say, the name of the event captured the environment perfectly. From the moment guests stepped into the exhibit, they were overwhelmed with childhood memories as everyone came face to face with an old friend. Hung throughout the ceilings was artwork from Inzo himself, and his paintings beautifully captured all of our childhood friends. As you walked through the interactive gallery you were face to face with famous cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny, Pikachu, etc.
After speaking with Inzo personally, ourselves and attendees at the event learned first hand from the artist what his motivation behind the collection was. During the panel portion of the event, Inzo shared with the crowd that his artwork was inspired by his childhood. He reminisced on Saturday mornings, filled with big ass bowls of cereal and morning cartoons. A memory everyone connected with all too easily.
It’s undeniable that Inzo’s work was amazing. Along with his masterpieces, the exhibit also showcased pieces from others artist such as etc. During the event guests were able to sit face to face with other talented creatives from the city. The guests like etc, participated in a panel and talked about their impact on Chicago as well as their upcoming projects. A major announcement shared that night was that Inzo himself, would be designing the artwork for the highly anticipated movie depicting Chicago’s own, Harold Washington.
To conclude, the event was certainly a success. It was filled with the essence of home. As people walked around the gallery, they laughed, enjoyed food, took pictures, and danced to 90s music. The environment was one filled with love and positivity. Inzo’s first showcase was a success, and as he shared with us, he’s ready to conquer the next big thing.
