Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to the next phase of the “Art of a Community Speaks” blog. I will be contributing to the ongoing research into the South Side Community Art Center’s art collection, the people who have passed through its doors, and the historic building by sharing stories from my research in the archives. As a graduate student in art history at UIC and long-time Chicago resident, I am thrilled to be a part of this project. SSCAC’s continuing history of exhibiting Chicago artists, hosting performances, and offering art classes to the community has ensured its place among Chicago’s great cultural institutions. Check back for updates as I share what I find!
