A Look Into The Art Center's Model Pictures Camp

Kicking off week 3 in our Special Topics Camps, kids line the halls of Gallery 2 and the Cleve E. Carney Gallery, admiring Ross Sawyer's exhibition, Model Pictures. Nearly thirty photographs hang on the walls, picturing small scale models Sawyers built himself. By creating these domestic environments, Sawyers uses the miniature models act as his photographic subjects, allowing him to examine depth, lighting, and shape. Today, we launched our Model Pictures camp, and I had the pleasure of sitting with the campers and observing the process.

Getting to know resident artist Sanjeev Shankar

As part of the Jackman Goldwasser Residency at Hyde Park Art Center, we are thrilled to welcome Indian architect, artist, and designer Sanjeev Shankar, who will spend six weeks in Chicago this summer working in our studios toward an ambitious future project. Interested in anthropology and social philosophy, Shankar hopes to use his background in architecture, science, and design to explore and develop a semi-permanent architectural installation to be potentially cultivated via community participation and hands-on methodology. Shankar looks forward to using his residency as an opportunity to explore this vision as an extension to his previous project in New Dehli, a large and temporary canopy made out of oilcans, titled Jugaad.
