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.
2020 will mark the eighth iteration of Not Just Another Pretty Face, a special edition to support artists and the Art Center during the COVID-19 crisis.
