Art Party

May 27, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Join Hyde Park Art Center for “Art Party,” an evening arts soirée (yes that translate to fun times making art and eating food!). Enjoy art making activities led by Chicago artists, open studios, free food and an after hours look at the Art Center’s exhibitions including Karen Reimer’s “Shoretime, Spaceline.” The evening will begin with a collective bike ride leaving the UChicago quad for the Art Center (5020 S. Cornell Ave.) at 6:30 pm.

At the Art Center:

  • Amina Ross will lead a movement based opening
  • Michelle Nordmeyer will lead a printmaking session
  • And Lyra Hill will teach you how to make zines!

This event is free and open to all UChicago students. Materials and supplies will be provided for all activities, and attendees are encouraged to take their art home with them! Planned and hosted by the Hyde Park Art Center Arts Leadership Fellows in conjunction with UCIJAM.
