Come celebrate the work of the Youth Art Board, a group of South Side teens who works year-round with the Art Center!

Exhibition Reception:
Sunday September 23, 3-5pm

The Dreams and Nightmares exhibition is curated by the Hyde Park Art Center’s Youth Art Board, incorporating artwork that explores concepts of dreams and nightmares by members of the Youth Art Board themselves, as well as teen artists from Chicago High School for the Arts. The exhibition will include work portraying literal depictions of dreams and nightmares, as well as related concepts, such as "The American Dream," personal phobias, or individual insecurities.

This year’s Youth Art Board members include include: Amere Sabah, Isiah Benson, Brandii Hill, Cathleen Dunning, Lia Miller, Regan Allen, Sarah Hecht, Sonia Jourdain, Haley Ferguson, Qiara Riley, Jahntelle Barton, Larry Sanders, and Maurice Philpotts

The Youth Art Board is a group of teens from South Side high schools that explores group projects, curates exhibitions, and represents the Art Center at public events. These young artists work with Art Center teaching artist Jeriah Hildwine, an instructor of youth and adult programs at Hyde Park Art Center and Lillstreet Art Center, who is currently exhibiting in a solo show at Linda Warren Projects in Chicago.

Youth Art Board’s Dreams and Nightmares will be on view from August 26 – November 11, 2012, at the Hyde Park Art Center, 5020 South Cornell Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60615; 773.324.5520 and www.hydeparkart.org. Exhibitions are always free and open to the public.
