Hyde Park Art Center is a hub for contemporary arts in Chicago, serving as a gathering and production space for artists and the broader community to cultivate ideas, impact social change, and connect with new networks. The Art Center functions as an amplifier for today and tomorrow’s creative voices, providing the space to cultivate and create new work and connections. Hyde Park Art Center offers a comprehensive set of programs that serve the creative and resource needs of artists and our communities. Through their exhibitions, artist talks, studio art classes, international and local residency program, free public events, satellite class sites, and professional development opportunities they work to provide the space for artists at every age and stage to cultivate their practice, build connections, and impact our world.
The Regional Re-granting Program is established to recognize and support the movement of independently organized, public-facing, artist-centered activity that animates local and regional art scenes but that lies beyond the reach of traditional funding sources.
