To kick off the show, Morley will create an original mural on the wall of the 424 S.

An Artists Reception, Talk and Book Signing of his book, “If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time”, will be held on December 12, 2015 from 6 pm – 10 pm with music by DJ KRB and beer provided by SweetWater Brewing Co.! The Book Signing begins at 8:00 pm. There will be a post-party at The Logan Theatre, 2646 N. Milwaukee Ave in Chicago, following the reception.
Regular gallery viewing hours are by appointment.
Morley is a Los Angeles-based street artist that specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheat pastes within the urban landscape. Blending humor, hope and his unique perspective on life, Morley’s aim is to act as a friendly voice amongst the cacophony of billboard messages and corporate slogans.
His work has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, The Huffington Post, LA Magazine, TheChive.com, L.A. Canvas and on television series for Comedy Central and Amazon. He has been shown in galleries around the world and he has lectured at numerous universities, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and The Artisphere in Washington DC. He toured the country with his book “If You’re Reading This, There’s Still Time” (published by Cameron + Company in 2014) and was featured in the AOL original docu-series “Vicariously.” The video link is https://vimeo.com/115996810.
