The crew of Made U Look (MUL) is willing to risk anything for their art. Called vandals, criminals, even creative terrorists, these Chicago graffiti artists set out night after night to make their voices heard and alter the way people view the world. But when the crew finishes the biggest graffiti bomb of their careers, the consequences get serious and spark a public debate asking, where does art belong? This Is Modern Art (based on true events) provides a glimpse into the lives of anonymous graffiti artists and asks us to question the true purpose of art.
A play co-written by Kevin Coval, Assistant Professor of Socially Engaged Art (Art & Art History Department) and acclaimed play write/Hip-Hop artist, Idris Goodwin (Blackademics, How We Got On)
