We want to see it!

Saturday, September 23, 2pm (rain date: Sept. 30)**
Jeanne Dunning, 'Tomato Fight'
an 'At the Edge: Innovative Art in Chicago' project

This event will take place on the grassy field between I-290 and Harrison
Street, and Halsted and Peoria Streets.

A public event in which a cast of volunteer participants throws massive
numbers of tomatoes at one another until every last tomato has found its
target. Bleacher seating will be available for the audience. Followed by
an exhibition of the large-scale photograph that depicts the aftermath of
a previous tomato fight and related video documentation; on view Oct. 3-
Nov. 4. Showing concurrently will be 'Drawings and Polaroids' from New
York-based artist Carter. Isolated, fragmented, drawn and photographed
body parts are the basic components in Carter's images, existing alongside
hints of landscape.

Jeanne Dunning is an internationally recognized, Chicago-based artist. Her
work was most recently seen in a mid-career retrospective at the Chicago
Cultural Center, organized and presented by the Berkeley Art Museum.

Gallery 400 thanks Hirzel Canning Co. & Farms for a generous in-kind
donation of Dei Fratelli Canned Whole Tomatoes.

**Please note: If rain forces 'Tomato Figh' to be postponed until Sept.
30, NOTICE will be posted on the Gallery 400 website
