In the late ’60s and early ’70s, self-taught artist Lee Godie could often be found selling her drawings and photographs on the steps of the Art Institute. This posthumous exhibition features more than 50 of her signature photo booth self-portraits, which she embellished with paint, ink and crayons. Curated by Karen Patterson of the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, this is the first exhibition to collect Godie's photographs, which were usually taken at Chicago bus station photo booths.
