Welcome to the Chicago Chapter of the WCA.

is a national member organization unique in its multi-disciplinary, multicultural membership of artists,
art historians, students, educators and museum professionals.
PROSPECTUS for TRANSMOGRIFICATION
ALL CWCA members are welcome to exhibit in this exciting themed exhibit!
Painting isn’t an aesthetic operation; it’s a form of magic designed as a mediator between this strange hostile world and us, a way of seizing the power by giving form to our terrors as well as our desires. – Pablo Picasso
transmutation • avatar • desention • conversion • transition • discord • regeneration
TRANSMOGRIFICATION is as simple as transitioning from who we are by entering a cardboard box “the transmogrifier,” as seen in the Calvin and Hobbes cartoon.
Or: it can be as complicated as altering ourselves, art, institutions, and beliefs into the fantastic, magical, or bizarre, as seen in the metamorphosis from a chrysalis into a butterfly, or in game arts.
