Come see the new installation at booth #176 including a temporary new wall painting by 2016 . Jackman Goldwasser Resident Artist, Eric J. Garcia and material intervention by current Center Program artist Frances Lightbound. This special project is curated by Hyde Park’s Residency & Public Programs Manager, Ariel Gentalen.
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.
