The Chicago Neighborhood Family Portrait Project with William Estrada

August 27, 2023 @ 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Hyde Park Residents and family, both familial and chosen, are invited to have their portrait taken by exhibiting artist, William Estrada, as a part of his ongoing project, THE CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD FAMILY PORTRAIT PROJECT. This portrait series’ focus is to provide families with a physical photograph that honors their story and questions whose stories are represented, who gets to claim neighborhoods, what effect race has on people’s experience, and what impact gentrification has on their lives. 

About The Exhibition: 

Multiples and Multitudes is the first-ever solo exhibition by Chicago-based artist and educator William Estrada. Estrada’s socially-engaged practice has been rooted in Chicago neighborhoods for the last twenty years. Through collaborations with youth, community members, teachers, and other artists, and through his multifaceted art practice, Estrada aims to reimagine public and educational spaces to unite people and amplify local voices. Estrada’s work in the studio and the classroom create space literally and metaphorically for others to express themselves artistically and politically. Multiples and Multitudes will feature artworks in print, photography, performance, and video, as well as works that blur disciplinary boundaries to highlight the diversity of approaches within his practice and his unwavering commitment to political activism through art.
