Artist Cheryl Pope collaborates with After School Matters, Air Force Academy High School, and poet Ayinde Cartman to present a series of personal readings by young spoken-word poets from Chicago. The event is presented as part of Just Yell, an ongoing project by Pope that explores the effects of gun violence on the city of Chicago.

Pope will present one final project at the MCA as part of Just Yell, MCA Live: Bring to Light on Tuesday, April 22. These projects are presented as part of RISK: Empathy, Art, and Social Practice, a concurrent exhibition at Columbia College’s Glass Curtain Gallery.
