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.
It's now more important than ever to ensure diversity in and access to the visual arts.
- access to arts education
- professional development for artists
