Virtual Walkthrough of our Teen Exhibition “Next Window, Please” @ 1pm via Zoom
Take a virtual walkthrough our upcoming Teen Exhibition, “Next Window Please.” The exhibition includes documentation of the community engaged work that the Art Center’s Youth Board of Artists (YBA) organized this Summer. During the 2019-2020 year, the young artists experienced the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the powerful wave of organized protests for racial justice that resulted from the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor, among many others. This exhibition is a celebration of young artists and their power.
Artist Talk with Hyde Park Art Center Tzoe Rivera @ 2pm via Zoom
Join our us for an Artist Talk with one of our teens, showcasing work in our upcoming teen exhibition, “Next Window Please.” Learn more about the multi-disciplinary work of Tzoe Rivera and gain insight into her practice at the Hyde Park Art Center, and at home. Check out an excerpt from her poem, “I am Woman, I bleed when the moon shows her face, she guides me. My hips sway to the sounds of nature, the girl I once was speaks to me, but only on nights like this.”
