Selection of photographs from my ongoing Calumet Region project by Matthew Kaplan 2021

Click to View Work:



I’m happy to announce that a selection of photographs from my ongoing Calumet Region project is currently on exhibit at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, Indiana. Sponsored by South Shore Arts as part of their Straight Shooter series, and selected predominantly from current work, the 26 color prints will be on display through March 8th in the Atrium Gallery of the center, which is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 3pm. (The Atrium is typically accessible on Sundays as well, although South Shore Arts doesn’t have established hours that day.)

Due to pandemic restrictions we’re not able to host a traditional opening or artist reception. However on Saturday January 23rd I will be at the Center from 12:30pm to 3:00pm hanging out with my work, and I invite folks who might wish to see the photographs and the photographer at the same time to come and join me. In addition the 77th Annual Salon Show will still be open in the main gallery on the 23rd, and is well worth a visit by itself.

The Center for Visual and Performing Arts
1040 Ridge Road
Munster, IN 46321

For those who can’t make it to the Center in person, a virtual gallery of the show is accessible now on the South Shore Arts website.

On Thursday February 4th at 7:00pm I’ll be participating in a live Zoom discussion of my work, as part of South Shore Art’s “Art in Focus” series. Anyone interested is invited to join the presentation. Details are available on the website.

I am extremely thankful for the support that the folks at South Shore Arts, especially John Cain and Bridget Covert, have given to my work!

Please come see the prints in person if you can, or virtually if that’s easier.

Thanks so much!

Welcome to the City Within a City

Southeast: a city within a city

A documentary film about Chicago’s Southeast Side

The Southeast side of Chicago is an often overlooked and stigmatized neighborhood of the city, blocked by an overcast of misguided interpretation. We are making a documentary to help shed light on this neighborhood’s near-mythic tale.

This webinar will focus on how citizens can prevent themselves from being victims of consumer fraud. Topics will include:

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, communities of color have been disproportionately affected by the virus. For the Latino community, that’s meant more cases, more lives lost, less access to testing, less ability to stay home due to essential and front-line jobs, and greater stress on home and family life within multi-generational households.
With vaccinations already underway in Chicago, join WBEZ weekend anchor Araceli Gomez-Aldana and leading public health experts to help you get verified, fact-based information.
Panelists include: Ngozi O. Ezike, MD, Director, Illinois Department of Public Health; Archana Chatterjee, MD, PhD, Dean, Chicago Medical School and Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; and Juanita Mora, MD, Allergy and Immunology, Chicago Allergy Center. During this event we will answer your questions about the COVID-19 vaccines.
Join us and be sure to submit questions via our survey. We’ll get to as many as we can during the event, and may use your questions to drive our reporting on COVID-19: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/6FNYJYD?A=partners
Thank you to Belmont-Cragin United, Esperanza Health Centers, and Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights for their support in collecting community questions, assisting with event promotion and co-live streaming this event. This event was also supported by the Pulitzer Center.
