Now on view! Future Fossils: SUM is the final major installation in a trilogy of work by Lan Tuazon that visualizes the lifespan of our material trace in the world.

Using new human geology and man-made impacts on ecological conditions as a model of how nature makes artifacts of human culture, this body of work shows us our own limits. Common packaged goods, and household items, are accumulated, dissected, cooked, and layered to give mass to our consumption: objects are fossilized to visualize geological time. One of the objects in the exhibition is a one-bedroom house built to scale and exhibited inside the two-story gallery at the Art Center.

Lan Tuazon mentions: "Each individual will produce 109 tons of waste in their lifetime and the house installation is to see how much of the 109 tons can be reabsorbed into building our present needs. I will present the 5 methods of material recovery: densify (coffee panels), reconfigure (Newswood), transform, secondary-use, and cultivated materials."

Come see the show, now on view through November 13.

Thank you to our lead sponsor Abakanowicz Arts and Culture Charitable Foundation.
This exhibition is also supported by the Henry Moore Foundation.
Special thanks to our partners Biomason, Citizen Scientific Workshop, Tradecraft Crating, Precious Plastics Academy, Resource Center (Chicago), and Waterbrick International.

As part of our continued efforts to keep our community safe, beginning October 18, we will require proof of vaccination to participate in all indoor classes, workshops, as well as indoor public events that require close contact (ie, prolonged contact with less than 6’ distance possible between participants). Alternatively, class-takers and participants may show a negative COVID-19 test result from within the last 72 hours before each program session.

Exhibition visitors will remain allowed to visit the galleries, while masked and distanced, without showing proof of vaccination or a negative test.

In light of the increasing spread of the Delta variant, as well as the broad accessibility of vaccines, we believe this is a crucial step toward helping protect the health and safety of our diverse community of artists, class-takers, visitors, teaching artists, and staff. This step will also allow us to continue to increase the capacity of our programs as safely as possible.

We will continue to mandate masks and distancing to minimize transmission risk. Additionally, in the school we will continue to offer reduced-capacity open studio hours and classes for high risk individuals.

Sneak peek of our upcoming exhibition "Future Fossils: SUM" by Lan Tuazon. This show highlights the lifespan of our material trace in the world through a one-bedroom house installation (to scale) exhibited inside our two-story gallery. Talk about putting things into perspective!

In this show you will see common packaged goods, tchotchkes, and household items that have been accumulated, dissected, cooked, and layered to give mass to the unseen byproduct of consumption.

The show will open in early September and run through November 7th.

Our Teens have blown us away once again! Their new exhibition "Quantum" is now on view through September 5 and features new and in-progress work across media made during the 2020-2021 academic year.

The exhibition’s title, Quantum, selected by the Youth Board of Artists, speaks to an energy that is always moving and ever-changing as it interacts with its environment, much like the way teen artists see their practices grow and evolve through dialog with each other and the Art Center’s community.

The exhibition is designed to encourage audience members to share feedback in a format that is similar to how teen artists critique each other in their classes.

The exhibition was organized by the Youth Board of Artists, Mariela Acuña, Exhibitions and Residency Coordinator and Alex Herrera, Manager of Teen Programs.

Congratulations on re-opening!
I am going to host a Poetry Slam via ZOOM later this month. Please contact me if you want to participate. Waiting for participants before I schedule. Please respond.
Trying to login to my PicsArt from my Facebook. It shows my picture but it created a different account so my other art doesn't show. I'm tired of the Henderson's being stupid about something that's mine. I'm 51. The girls out and Archdiocese scholarship haven't matriculated.
They made my device blowout. Made sure I'm without a outlet. Had me power up a device that I asked for a different device. Set the tether so it doesn't go to my account. Sick of this.
We so excited to be hosting our first-ever virtual family history conference. Please join us!: https://www.facebook.com/events/2415507452086586/
This might be a long shot...Any k-8 art teachers in the group interested in teaching 1-2 days a week in elementary schools? Please PM me. Thank you!!!
Art is kept alive by organizations like this. I love supporting artists and recently came across the film 'Queen of Hearts' that told the story of Audrey Flack, an American artist credited with pioneering the photorealism movement. I was able to view the film on Film Festival Flix, a streaming platform dedicated to uplifting independent artists and filmmakers. I learned so much about the photorealism community through this film and I would definitely recommend it to any fellow art-lovers! While the film was only available for a limited time, Film Festival Flix contains so many more informative films! Good luck to everyone on their projects!
