Protected: Not Just Another Pretty Face 2019

Info & History

Not Just Another Pretty Face is a collaborative commissioning project created by Hyde Park Art Center that supports the vibrancy of Chicago’s art economy by cultivating a broad group of patrons for the city’s artists. The Art Center arranges commissions between patrons and artists who create engaging, personalized works of art. The project, which occurs every several years, culminates with an unveiling event, an exhibition in several of Art Center’s galleries, and a catalog documenting the works and participant experiences.

2019 will mark the seventh iteration of Not Just Another Pretty Face.
