About the Hyde Park Art Center
Hyde Park Art Center has been a leader in advancing contemporary visual art in Chicago since 1939. The nonprofit organization brings artists and communities together to support creativity at every level.
Within its facility, the Art Center offers a comprehensive roster of programs that work in concert to make contemporary art more approachable. It does so by involving the community in dynamic engagement with art and artists through exhibitions, artist talks, studio art classes, an international residency program, free public events, and professional development opportunities for artists.
Outside its walls, the Art Center’s outreach programs in historically under served neighborhoods bring the visual arts to Chicago youth, their teachers, and their families.
