Home Is Where The Art Is

I attended and shot an event held at the Bronzeville home of Ra & Falona Joy last week as part of The Chicago Home Theater Festival. CHTF is a small part of an international movement started in Berkeley, California and now spans 3 continents and 10 countries. During the month of May, 20 hosts in a variety of city neighborhoods open their homes and transform them into performance spaces for art, spoken word, cinema, and interdisciplinary art. The Chicago Home Theater Festival activities are from May 1-25th, 2014.

The Schedule of remaining events can be found here
