“art's full potential unleashed”
The Hyde Park Art Center's mission is to stimulate and sustain the visual arts in Chicago. It is the oldest alternative exhibition space in the City and boasts a long record of education outreach in the community. The Art Center presents innovative exhibitions of new work by primarily Chicago-based artists; education programs for children and adults, novice through professional; and, free public programming for a diverse and creative audience.
