The Hyde Park Art Center is honored to host a public memorial celebrating the life and work of visionary architect Doug Garofalo.
The organization is especially grateful to Doug for his Chicago AIA- and Driehaus Award-winning design of the Art Center facility. In designing the structure’s interior, Doug demonstrated a nuanced understanding of the Art Center’s core values. His unique vision resulted in a building that embodies the central themes of the organization’s mission: accessibility between artists and the public, transparency of the process of art making and exhibiting, and active experimentation with technology and concepts.
Doug’s tremendous contributions to architecture in Chicago, and architectural practice and education the world over, will remain the remarkable legacy of an extraordinary man and a stunning career.
We hope you will join us in honoring his memory.
Open to the public, 4-7 pm.
