During the course of the program, each participant created an artwork or series around the theme of boundaries.

The artists selected to participate in the second Chicago cohort of the Midwest Jewish Artists Lab are:

Stewart Cherlin Alan Hobscheid
Julie Cowan  Suzanne Horwitz
Dorit Jordan Dotan Sandra Perlow
Gabrielle Egnater Joyce Polance
Peter N. Gray Charles Rice
Charlotte Hart Pauline L. Silberman

The Midwest Jewish Artists Lab is generously supported by a grant from the Covenant Foundation.
