Seventy-five years ago, several SAIC students helped found the South Side Community Art Center, the first black art museum in the United States. ‘Shared History,’ curated by alumna Rashayla Marie Brown and supported by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, celebrates the collective history of the South Side Community Art Center and SAIC. Student and alumni work will expand upon the rich legacy of partnership between two of America’s most vital arts institutions.
Featuring artwork by Archibald Motley, Ayanah Moor, Barbara Jones-Hogu, Charles White, Elizabeth Catlett, Faheem Majeed, Margaret Burroughs, Rashid Johnson, Sanford Biggers, Tony Lewis, and 40+ student and alumni artists
