Save the date for a virtual portrait session with Irina Zadov on May 2nd from 2-3pm via Zoom.

Join us for a virtual portrait painting session with artist Irina Zadov!

Zadov’s exhibition "What Time Is It?" features a series of large-scale digital portraits of some of Chicago’s most influential cultural community members, contemporary artists, authors, activists and thinkers working now to radically transform our city. The exhibition is showcased on the facade of the Hyde Park Art Center. Zadov will join us virtually and paint and interview a member from our Hyde Park Art Center community.

Irina Zadov (she/they) is an artist, educator, and cultural organizer. They are a queer post-Soviet Jewish immigrant and settler on the unceded territories of the Three Fires Confederacy: Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi; and also the Myaamia, Inoka, Ho-Chunk, and Menominee, also known as Chicago, IL. Their practice explores the liminal space between the individual and the collective, diasporic community and chosen family, the home and the state. Irina aims to co-create joyful, healing, and liberatory spaces by, for, and with Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, immigrants, young people, and LGBTQIA+ communities

Join us for Center Sundays! Center Sundays is a family-friendly filled day of art-making activities, workshops, and artist talks. This month we are offering socially distanced outdoor activities and virtual programs!

As part of our virtual programs we will host an exhibition walkthrough and artist talk with Maggie Crowley on May 2nd from 3-4pm via Zoom.

The walkthrough will showcase Maggie Crowley’s first solo exhibition in Chicago, "Playmate," featuring a new series of large figurative paintings in acrylic on silk in which she examines her admiration and personal connection to the service industry. Crowley examines the invisible labor and value placed on essential work – a discrepancy recently heightened in the US by the pandemic. The walkthrough will be followed by a facilitated Q&A with Exhibitions and Residency Coordinator, Mariela Acuna.

We had the chance to chat with our current resident artists, Jory Drew. As they come to the end of their Art Center and Black Art Consortium (BAC) residency, they share with us what it meant to be part of our community.

“The BAC Residency at Hyde Park Art Center has allowed me to materialize my artistic goals and expand my practice past my prior spatial or economic restrictions. I’ve had the chance to share space, learn, and develop my practice during my time in the residency.”

"Participating in this residency program has validated many years of hard work and hard experiences. Coming from months of Isolation due to the pandemic, this residency program gave me a secure sanctuary to create my work. I am so thankful and excited to have been part of Hyde Park Art Center's community.”

Meet Maggie Crowley! Maggie's show "Playmate" is now on view. Pre-register for your visit here: https://buff.ly/3iTpITJ

In her first solo exhibition in Chicago, artist Maggie Crowley presents a new series of large paintings in acrylic on silk that reflect her admiration and personal connection to the service industry. Uniforms and accessories, like safety vests, helmets, and coolers, identify public workers and render them visible, while conducting labor that is considered invisible. Crowley considers this contradiction as it relates to the value placed on essential work – a discrepancy recently heightened in the US by the pandemic.
--
Maggie Crowley received her M.F.A. from the University of Chicago in 2013, her M.A. from Eastern Illinois University in 2011 and her B.S. from Illinois State University in 2009. Crowley has exhibited in numerous venues including the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, the Evanston Art Center, the Hyde Park Art Center, Area: Lugar de Proyectos in Caguas, Puerto Rico and 65Grand in Chicago. Her work has been featured in the prestigious journal New American Paintings in 2017 and 2013. Since 2014 Crowley has co-directed Produce Model Gallery in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. The gallery is dedicated to programming and exhibitions featuring Caribbean and Latinx artists. Crowley serves on the board of the International Children’s Media Center (ICMC) in Chicago, helping to facilitate education programs for prisons, jails and at-risk students in Chicago.

Meet Faheem Majeed! We are looking forward to hosting Faheem's show "Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden Shrouds" which opens May 3rd. RSVP to see the show here: https://buff.ly/3iTpITJ

As part of the show, Faheem will showcase an ambitious new installation that furthers his investigation of cultural institutions by focusing on the history of the historic South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC). Majeed will produce a monumental charcoal rubbing of building facade of the SSCAC as the central focus of his first large-scale solo exhibition. In addition to this new fabric work Majeed will also be incorporating his ongoing series of reused wooden planks entitled Planting and Maintaining a Perennial Garden repurposed from the SSCAC’s Burroughs Gallery. For this installation the wooden planks will take the form of a platform that will both raise the massive building sized fabric rubbing on a pedestal and be host to performance and discussion.
-------
Faheem Majeed is a builder—literally and metaphorically. A resident of the South Shore neighborhood in Chicago, Majeed often looks to the material makeup of his neighborhood and surrounding areas as an entry point into larger questions around civic-mindedness, community activism, and institutional critique.

As part of his studio practice, the artist transforms materials such as particle board, scrap metal and wood, and discarded signs and billboard remnants, breathing new life into these often overlooked and devalued materials. His broader engagement with the arts also involves arts administration, curation, and community facilitation, all which feed into his larger practice.

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!
