This month, we are excited to feature our treatment of a lithograph by Charles White, a renowned Chicago artist whose retrospective is currently on display at the Art Institute of Chicago. Next, we welcome you to marvel at the enormity of a historic teapot our Objects Department recently repaired for the Springfield Art Association. Lastly, we share the story behind a pair of books we repaired just in time for our client to bring them on his summer journey to the North Pole.

Exhibition: Covered: Celebrating Muslim Women (extended through July 15)
Yuself Abbul Jaleel created a series of brightly colored graphic designs depicting various Muslim women around the world showing the variety and beauty of coverings. Using illustration, Jaleel explores Muslim women's clothing and modesty as an extension of faith, a form of beauty and as a positive representation of Islam. These images create a more nuanced conversation around Muslim women that is often at odds with the media's portrayal of the religion and its people.
