Teen Show 2020

New paintings, drawings, photography, prints, and multimedia works demonstrate the intense study by young adult artists participating in Hyde Park Art Center’s Teen programs. Under the guidance of professional artists, nearly twenty teens develop their creative voices over the course of 15 weeks. These young artists chose to address the challenges in articulating perplexed thoughts, feelings, and emotions into individual works of art.

Ground Floor

Hyde Park Art Center is proud to announce the return of Ground Floor, the fifth iteration of a biennial exhibition that features artwork by some of Chicago’s most promising emergent talent.

The METAMORPHOSIS of Gabriel Villa

Through an extensive studio and public art practice, Chicago-based artist Gabriel Villa seeks to seamlessly translate the language of Mexican traditions and the personal, urban American experience into charged intimate narratives. Villa’s subjects are ever evolving but always concentrate on psychological and social inequity in our multifaceted contemporary world. His stream of consciousness approach to painting and drawing expose the heightened reality found in everyday objects and places. Hyde Park Art Center is proud to introduce Villa’s new direction into installation, clay sculpture created during his Jackman Goldwasser Residency along with previous paintings.
