HairStories is an exhibition of more than 60 works in various media including paintings, sculpture and photographs now on display at the Chicago Cultural Center. This free exhibit "explores the complex phenomena of Black hair in America as vehicle of self-expression and artistic invention, as well as a reflection of gender and race relations." You can see the exhibition in the Sidney R. Yates Gallery of the Center through July 3.
