We are thrilled to announce our 2021 Makers-in-Residence, Katelyn Patton and Faith Humphrey Hill.
Katelyn Patton will create a body of work that engages with the community's awareness and perceptions of the urban ecology in the city of Chicago, culminating in an interpretive field guide. She will present eight summer workshops which will include opportunities for participants to document plants and animals and to create fabric and paper sculptures. Patton's residency begins in June.

Faith Humphrey Hill will create portraits that combine knitting and 3D printing. The portraits will be of individuals impacted by COVID to: remember those who passed away; appreciate those who worked to protect the ill; and thank the children who witnessed these events. She will present eight fall workshops which will include opportunities for participants to explore multiple knit and drawing techniques. Humphrey Hill's residency begins in September.
