The Art Center celebrates its 80th Anniversary by inviting our current community of class-taking artists, and faculty to reflect on the history of Hyde Park’s shifting categorization. Hyde Park began as a rural township, but by the 1893 World’s Columbian Exhibition was officially annexed to the city of Chicago. Located a mere seven miles south of the city center, Hyde Park maintains a small town vibe that can feel worlds away from the bustle of Chicago’s downtown. Curated by Curatorial Fellow, Audrey Moyer, the exhibition features painting, drawing, sculpture and print work that consider the qualities of urban, suburban, and the porous boundary between.
