Our 2020 Jurors

We are honored to have Edra Soto and Pooja Pittie join us for this year’s juried exhibition.

Puerto Rican born, Edra Soto is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, curator, and co-director of the outdoor project space THE FRANKLIN, in Chicago. Her upbringing and relationships with communities in Puerto Rico and the US inform her artistic practice. Her recent projects, which are motivated by civic and social actions, prompt viewers to reconsider cross-cultural dynamics, the legacy of colonialism, and personal responsibility. She is invested in providing visual and educational models propelled by empathy and generosity. She is a lecturer for the Contemporary Practices Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, from which she received an MFA.

Pooja Pittie was born and raised in Mumbai, India, she moved to the U.S. in 1999. An MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business led her to a career in Finance and Entrepreneurship. In 2016, she decided to pursue her lifelong passion for art and shifted her focus to painting full-time. Pooja has an incurable and progressive form of muscular dystrophy and her painting process explores the constantly changing relationship between an often slow body and an active mind. She is represented by the McCormick Gallery in Chicago.
