What lies within
This unique exhibition features a wide variety of originals, tiny sculptures, fiber-made skulls, delicate drawings, and art prints, all inspired by the interiors, insides, and fabricated guts! Artists have taken it upon themselves to investigate the hidden truths and secrets of some of their favorite and most bizarre subjects! Part exploration, part education, part evisceration -- we want to know what's really underneath the surface. The exhibition peels back the skin of all of the subjects you've ever wanted to know more about!
Join us for this incredible journey within!

Lana Crooks loves the antique, the creepy, the cute, and the mysterious. A textile sculptor by trade, she strives to recreate complicated and delicate skeletal pieces in wool. Constructing creatures from fabrics and found objects, she is a purveyor of faux specimens and soft curiosities. You can usually find Lana in her Chicago studio surrounded by skulls, old books, model ships, a menagerie of stuffed friends, and a cat named Tanuki.
