Ed Paschke is celebrated as one of the leading Chicago Imagists, a group of artists who emerged in the late 1960s with an expressive style of figurative painting rooted in Surrealism, outsider art, and popular culture. Less is known of his almost 30 years teaching art and artists at Northwestern University. This show celebrates his legacy as an educator with artworks by Paschke alongside his teaching material from the Northwestern University Archives and generous loans from Marc and Sharon Paschke.
