Hyde Park Kunstverein

Hyde Park Kunstverein HPK was founded in the summer of 2011 by Erik Peterson, Laura Shaeffer, Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford and Beate Geissler Hyde Park Kunstverein (HPK) is a community museum focusing on local artists and citizens and their work.

HPK will act as a cultural incubator in Hyde Park and surrounding neighborhoods, setting up a hybrid zone where the museum is reframed within the context of street-level community and social interaction. We are interested in the challenge of presenting and honoring the person as well as the work, so hobbies, collections, personal narratives and present issues are all of great interest. The museum

Dear friends of HPK!

Remember the George Kagan exhibit and all of those really cool radios? They can be yours! Come by and pick one up, they range from $100 up and donate now to help us keep this space for SHoP!

We have had to regroup after losing our financial support from Top Studios! We are here with a strong vision for the future, come by and see us tonight at the art and music event, Popped 6 to 11 or tomorrow 12 to 5 at the Indie City book fair to see where we are headed and our new booklet shelving by Kevin Reiswig!!

If you have have participated in one of our exhibitions, been inspired by the art shown, met some interesting people with whom you have developed a friendship or collaboration, bought something amazing or needed at our thrift, made something great with your kids or learned a new skill, enjoyed a concert or just had a nice time at any of our events or spaces, and want independent programming, exhibits and events to keep happening here in Hyde Park, please consider donating to our Indiegogo campaign now!

We need to raise $15,000 to cover overhead for this beautiful storefront after we lost our funding. It's fast and easy, you get perks like a cool t-shirt and poster designed by Kione Konchi, access to shared studio space, a great after school program for the upcoming year, an independent animation festival, experimental music programming and all kinds of upcoming classes, workshops and events for all ages.

All contributions are appreciated!

Thank you for your continued support!
Laura and all of us at SHoP
