Hyde Park Art Center (HPAC)

Hyde Park Art Center is a hub for contemporary arts in Chicago, serving as a gathering and production space for artists and the broader community to cultivate ideas, impact social change, and connect with new networks. The Art Center functions as an amplifier for today and tomorrow’s creative voices, providing the space to cultivate and create new work and connections. 

We offer a comprehensive set of programs that serve the creative and resource needs of artists and our communities. Through our exhibitions, artist talks, studio art classes, international and local residency program, free public events, satellite class sites, and professional development opportunities we work to provide the space for artists at every age and stage to cultivate their practice, build connections, and impact our world.

Our mission is to stimulate and sustain the visual arts in Chicago.

All exhibitions and events are free and open to the public. Visit our website for updated hours and info.
