On Friday January 26th, the LCC collaborated with the OPEN Center for their Arts and the Field Museum in a community-based pop-up exhibition event. Artifacts such as taxidermied animals, plant specimens, and artistic pieces were brought from the Field to Little Village, to share with th wider community. As part of the exhibition hosting, they also put on several public programs, including one about the Monarch butterfly and another about Chocolate. The LCC brought several pieces of our own traveling exhibition about chocolate to join in and share a more local story with the other themes of the show. Dance performances, chocolate tastings, and a scientific presentation rounded out the evening with participants of all ages!
