South Side Community Art Center
Chicago, Illinois

To support ReSOURCE: Art and Resourcefulness in Black Chicago (October–December 2024), a wide-ranging historical and contemporary exhibition that focuses on Black artists in Chicago who work with found objects and repurposed materials, environmentally sustainable materials and ecological themes, including the space of the city as theme and medium. Forging connections between historical practices of resourcefulness and the urgency of contemporary ecological themes, the exhibition shows how earlier generations of Black artists constitute a powerful source of ideas and traditions for artists working today. The grant supports an engagement fellow, who teaches youth programs and coordinates with partner organizations. The project is part of the Terra Foundation initiative Art Design Chicago.
