With the support of the Terra Foundation for American Art, Harold Washington Library Center YOUmedia conducted an intensive art education program for teens in summer 2018. Teens found inspiration in the work of Chicago’s artists by exploring museum collections throughout the city. They also learned sophisticated techniques in screen printing, relief carving and other mediums, and they created new pieces of art while doing so.
This fall and winter, the amazing artwork they created is on display in a traveling exhibit at six CPL locations across the city:
- Toman: October 15 to November 2
- Dunning: October 15 to November 2
- Sulzer Regional: November 12-30
- Woodson Regional: November 12-30
- Coleman: December 10-21
- Austin: December 10-21
- Harold Washington Library Center (Van Buren Corridor): January 12 to March 24
Each of these locations will host a reception to introduce their community to the art. Each location will also offer a hands-on printmaking workshops for teens.
Chicago Public Library is part of Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago's art and design legacy, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
