EXPO Chicago

September 28, 2018 - September 30, 2018

September 28 – September 30

Hyde Park Art Center is in Booth #176 at EXPO CHICAGO!
Come see the new installation including a wall painting by 2016 Jackman Goldwasser Resident Artist, Eric J. Garcia and an chain link installation by current Center Program artist Frances Lightbound.

These talented artists seek to call attention to overlooked issues–often right under our feet. Working together to create a vibrant installation that bridges Garcia’s figurative murals with Lightbound’s conceptual sculpture, this collaboration seeks to disrupt the dominant understanding of American history that is often whitewashed, flattened, and contrary from known reality. Garcia’s and Lightbound’s work is able to generate understandings for the viewer, of how past events are related to our lives.

This year, EXPO is celebrating the city’s art and design legacy with special programming in alignment with Art Design Chicago.  Now entering its seventh edition, EXPO CHICAGO presents artwork from more than 3,000 artists from around the world, and a dynamic roster of programming.  We are excited to participate in this year’s expo!
