    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Matthew Hoffman is best-known for his viral “You Are Beautiful” street art campaign. His works have been exhibited internationally, and have provided a positive message in Chicago and beyond—something that has been especially salient during a year that has seen a great deal of political division. At this Lab, join Hoffman and the Bank of America as the artist paints a mural in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood. Hoffman is one of 2,000 visual and performing artists who work with Bank of America across the world to transform neighborhoods into world-class museums. Discover how art helps foster that change, regardless of its setting.

    *Wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty. Must be 16 years or older.
