Timed Programs

Candace Hunter Presents A “Brown Limbed Girls” Performance

1:30 – 2:15pm

Join Creative Wing Artist, Candace Hunter and an ensemble of performers who will bring her popular art series, “Brown Limbed Girls,” to life live at the Hyde Park Art Center. Candace Hunter began the “Brown Limbed Girls” series of collages during 2020’s lockdown. These whimsical and carefree brown girls were created to be aspirational and to provide hope that life would be filled with joy again. “Brown Limbed Girls” have also been used on billboards throughout the Chicago area to spread COVID awareness.

The Day I Met the Sun: Turiyasangitananda Listening Session with Resident Artist Devin Mays

2:30 – 3:15pm

Kanter-McCormick Gallery

Please join us for an event by resident artist Devin T. Mays who will present a listening session as ritual inspired by the music and artistic practice of Turiyasangitananda, the Sanskrit name of jazz musician Alice Coltrane. Conceived as both an offering and meditation, Mays will share reflections on each musical selection, which we will experience collectively. This program is in partnership with Black Arts Consortium, Northwestern.

Film Screening of “Alice Street” Documentary and Talkback

3:30 – 5pm

Join former Resident Artist, Desi Mundo, for a screening of his film “Alice Street,” followed by a talkback discussion about gentrification and displacement. “Alice Street,” tells the story of two artists and they form an unlikely partnership to paint their most ambitious mural to date in Oakland’s downtown, ground zero for gentrification. The mural is dedicated to the diverse cultural artists that intersect on the corner, who are threatened by displacement. As the mural paint dries, a luxury condo is planned that will obstruct the art and cultural history.
