Artists Connect: Bit Bash—Interactive Influence



Admission actions

Bit Bash, Chicago’s alternative video game festival, presents Interactive Influence, a program highlighting digital work by emerging game designers and digital artists that respond to artworks on display from the Art Institute’s collection.

Artists Connect is a new series of in-gallery programs that highlight the creative process. Artists, poets, dancers, and musicians engage with works of art, making connections to their own practice and inspiring new ways of understanding the Art Institute’s collection.

*Museum admission is free for Illinois residents every Thursday, 5:00–8:00—including during this event.

About the artist
