‘Articulating the Edge’ features new drawings, photography, prints, and collages by teens participating in the Hyde Park Art Center’s in-house arts mentorship program, Art Shop. Art Shop develops the artists of tomorrow by allowing teens to explore a career as visual artists today. The program gives youth access to free training in the visual arts, assisting them in building their portfolios by providing open access to all the resources in the Art Center’s studios. Over the course of the program, teens work on individual art projects, receiving guidance, critique, and feedback from an artist mentor to produce an exhibition-ready body of work. Articulating the Edge will include work by budding artists from Kenwood Academy, King College Prep, Mount Carmel High School, Options Lab Charter School, and University of Chicago Laboratory School.
