Flag Event Primary

Come doodle, draw, and color with Gallery 400, the University of Illinois at Chicago’s contemporary art gallery. Create an exciting work of art with your friends, family, and neighbors in a fun, laid-back environment. Your flag will then be flown on Gallery 400’s 25-foot flagpole, located on the UIC campus at 404 South Peoria Street, for the community to enjoy and admire. No need to be an artist or art expert—participants of all ages and artistic abilities are welcome!
