Meet William Farah Salem! @ferrah.s is one of our 2021 Radicle Studio artists who will be with us for a year-long residency from January to December, 2021.⠀

Farah Salem (she/her) is an artist and art therapist from Kuwait, whose photo, performance, and installation practice questions the potential erasure of socio-cultural conditioning, focusing on the gendered nature of trauma as it is embedded within her experiences as an Arab woman. Her studio and art therapy practices are bridged by social activism. In both, she focuses on community building through art-making, investigating the use of materials for social-emotional wellbeing, accessibility of mental health services, and raising awareness about domestic and gender-based violence. She holds a BA in Visual Communications from Gulf University for Science and Technology and an MA in Art Therapy from SAIC. Farah’s work has been exhibited at United Photo Industries (New York), Mana Contemporary (Chicago), Site Galleries (Chicago), La Galerie (Dubai), and Contemporary Art Platform (Kuwait).

Our Virtual Center Sunday Teen Takeover is only days away! Join us on February 7th anytime between 1-4pm CST.

At 1pm we will have a Virtual Walkthrough of our Teen Exhibition “Next Window, Please” via Zoom.

Our upcoming Teen Exhibition, “Next Window Please" includes documentation of the community engaged work that the Art Center’s Youth Board of Artists (YBA) organized this Summer. During the 2019-2020 year, the young artists experienced the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the powerful wave of organized protests for racial justice that resulted from the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, among many others. This exhibition is a celebration of young artists and their power. More info: https://buff.ly/3sYiTpV

Join us on February 7th from 1-4pm CST as our @hpacteens take over our Virtual Center Sunday event.

At 2pm we will have an artist talk with Hyde Park Art Center's teen Tzoe Rivera via Zoom. Tzoe will be showcasing work in our upcoming teen exhibition, “Next Window Please.” Tune in to learn more about the multi-disciplinary work of Tzoe Rivera and gain insight into her practice at the Hyde Park Art Center, and at home.

The following is an excerpt from her poem “I am Woman."

I bleed when the moon shows her face

She guides me

My hips sway to the sounds of nature
The girl I once was speaks to me
But only on nights like this
Nights when I realize I've lost her

In search for her voice
Her energy fills the room
She is familiar again

But when the moon goes into hiding
And sun shines upon my face once more.

Meet William Estrada! William is one of our 2021 Radicle Studio artists who will be with us for a year-long residency from January to December, 2021.

@werdmvmnt (he/him) grew up in California, Mexico, and Chicago. His teaching and art making practice focus on addressing inequity, migration, historical passivity and cultural recognition in historically marginalized communities. He documents and engages experiences in public spaces to transform, question, and make connections to established and organic systems through discussion, creation, and amplification of stories through creativity already present. He has worked as an educator and artist with Chicago Arts Partnership in Education, Hyde Park Art Center, SkyArt, Marwen Foundation, Urban Gateways, DePaul University’s College Connect Program, Graffiti Institute, Vermont College of Art and Design, Prison + Neighborhood Art Project, and the School of The Art Institute of Chicago.

@samuraiceci is a visual artist and art instructor from Mexico City based in Chicago. Cecilia holds an MFA in Studio from SAIC which she coursed as a Fulbright scholar, and a BFA with honors from ENPEG La Esmeralda (Mexico City). She has painted murals in several cities such as Mexico City, Oaxaca, Pachuca, Tepoztlan, Houston, Paris, Hiketa, and Tijuana, where she was commissioned to paint a segment of the border wall between Mexico and the US. Through her work, which includes painting -with a particular fascination for big-scale projects-, drawing, animation, film, and sculpture, Cecilia develops a speculative mythology with unique visual narratives. Cecilia questions who gets to tell stories and establish the official cultural narratives. She affirms her creative agency by modifying existing tales and mythology and seamlessly adding fiction and personal anecdotes.

Meet @poojapittie!

Hello, I am Pooja Pittie! I am an artist living and working here in Chicago. As an artist working with a disability, I use painting to explore connections between body and mind, movement, and stillness. Four years ago, I left behind a career in Finance to become a full-time artist. The Hyde Park Art Center has played a pivotal role in shaping my practice through its Bridge and Center Programs and I am so proud to be a part of this community!
I love to travel, read and have long philosophical debates with my teenage son, who turns 18 this year. One of my favorite things to do in Hyde Park is catching up with friends at the Bridgeport coffee house after taking in a show at the Center.

The New Year is fast approaching, but there is still time to support Hyde Park Art Center in 2020. Throughout this challenging year, the Art Center remained committed to serving its many communities through contribute-what-you-can online classes, virtual programing, and safe exhibition viewing.

One participant in the Art Center’s online classes remarks, “The sense of community that [the teaching artist] created was immensely valuable and almost therapeutic in nature.”

Your contribution will ensure that artists of all ages and in all stages of their career can access the resources to practice their creative processes safely and freely.

Meet Nancy Lu Rosenheim!
--
"Hello, I'm @nancylurosenheim, my narrative fictions reside where the grotesque meets the flamboyant, where hybrid beasts express human emotions and roam an earth in the throes of ecological collapse. But when I’m not spinning tales, I wander through real forests in Wisconsin. In this fecund landscape I contemplate nature’s resilience and work towards its rescue. I am a proud, doting mother and a teacher of over twenty years, currently at Northeastern Illinois University and the College of Lake County. I have felt loved and embraced by Hyde Park Art Center in countless ways: exhibitions, artist programs, classes and beyond. As a girl from a sprawling, tightly knit extended family, I can testify that Hyde Park Art Center knows how to be like family. Boundless gratitude."

Join us at 3pm at our #Virtual Center Sunday event on December 6th for an artist talk and a “Cuts and Beats” Exhibition walkthrough with artist @Cecilmcdonald.

In his upcoming exhibition, McDonald Jr. uses photography, video, and text to explore intersections of masculinity, ancestry, and the artistic and intellectual pursuits of Black Americans. “Cuts and Beats” refers to the title of McDonald’s most recent body of work in which the artist subverts historical images, like publicity stills from Black artists in the Vaudeville and Minstrel era, by transforming them using techniques of photo collage, video, and performance combined with his own photographs.

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!
