At 7 p.m. Friday, the brothers will debut an Ed Paschke exhibit at the Zhou B Art Center, 1029 W. 35th St. The exhibit will feature more than 20 of Paschke’s paintings in a gallery usually reserved for the Zhou Brothers’ work.
As part of a cross-town collaboration called “Journey to Art: Ed Paschke and Zhou Brothers,” the Bridgeport-based artists recently erected a pair of sculptures in Jefferson Park’s Ed Paschke Art Center.
ShanZuo and DaHuang Zhou sent the Paschke center "The Lover," a 20-foot-tall, 7,500-pound sculpture, and "Sun Island," a 21-foot-tall, 12,000-pound sculpture.
The goal of the collaboration? Use art to connect two working-class neighborhoods, according to organizers.
Paschke, who died in 2004, was one of the first artists to welcome to Zhou Brothers to Chicago in 1986, when they opened their gallery in Bridgeport.
