Join CPS Lives in-person at Filter Space or online via Zoom for a night of critique and conversation. CPS Lives photographers invite the larger Chicago photography community to join them as they share works-in-progress created during their time as residents in various Chicago Public Schools.


This critique will feature:

  • Doug McGoldirck; in residence at William Penn Elementary

  • Kathryn Rodrigues; in residence at Sullivan High School

  • Justin Schmitz; in residence at Taft High School 

Founded in 2018 by Chicago photographer, Suzette Bross, CPS Lives is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization that pairs Chicago artists, designers, creatives, thinkers, makers, and educators with a Chicago Public School during the academic year to collaborate on a project, sharing the unique and individual story of each Chicago Public School. Each story will be celebrated and exhibited through local Chicago Public Library branches, as well as existing on the CPS Lives website as an accessible digital archive of history for students, families, community members, educators, administrators, policymakers, and the general public.
