Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago
Exploring the role of Chicago’s Hyde Park community, its people, and its institutions in the history and legacy of the Chicago Imagists, this program features panel participants:
- Richard Born, Senior Curator, Smart Museum of Art;
- Jim Falconer, Hairy Who Artist;
- Allison Peters Quinn, Director of Exhibitions and Residency Programs, Hyde Park Art Center; and
- Rebecca Zorach, Professor of Art History, Romance Languages and Literatures, University of Chicago.
The panel followed a screening of the documentary film Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists and was the first in a series of three free screenings and discussions, which also included:
- “Art & Comics, 1960s to Present” at the Chicago Cultural Center, and
- “Gender Equality in the Visual Arts” at Gallery 400.
Organized by Pentimenti Productions with the University of Chicago’s Film Studies Center, the Smart Museum of Art, and the Hyde Park Art Center (HPAC), this program was developed in conjunction with the yearlong celebrations for the Smart Museum’s 30th anniversary and HPAC’s 75th anniversary.
