Pop Up JUST Art Gallery (PUJA)

Our Pop Up JUST Art (PUJA) gallery serves as a portal to the neighboring communities and the larger Chicago community. It is an engaging space for students, faculty, and community members to come together to have conversations, and share strategies and insight about today’s most pressing social issues. We have diverse events at PUJA, ranging from gallery openings to community strategy sessions, to course seminars.

The Social Justice Initiative at UIC is proud to present the 2017 reopening of the Pop-Up JUST Art (PUJA) gallery this August 11th. The gallery opens with Owen Lawson’s solo photography exhibition, BLACK CHICAGO RESISTS. Black Chicago Resists provides a glimpse into the varied and layered forms of political resistance that Black Chicagoans and their supporters have mounted over the past several years. 

The new location is 1344 S. Halsted St. Chicago, IL, 60607.

The Gallery will be open to the public for exhibition tours and to UIC community members for meeting space. Call 312-355-5922 for hours and details.
