Students from across Columbia College Chicago brought the South Side Community Art Center’s (SSCAC) administrative archives to life through a recent exhibition titled, “Artists and Models: A Tribute to the South Side Community Art Center.” The exhibit was previously on display at C33 Gallery (33 Ida B. Wells Dr. first floor).
This student led exhibition celebrates the South Side Community Art Center’s pioneering role in promoting Black art and creativity in Chicago. This exhibition features documents from the Center’s archival records to trace aspects of the Center’s history from its first four decades.
Artists and Models was curated by Charlotte Briskin, Anastasia Murphy, Justin Ridgel, James Ross, Matthew Walcott, and Teanna White in Dr. Melanie Chambliss’s Fall 2020 course Black Artistry and the Archive. The exhibition was designed by Elsa Mae Brydalski, Hannah Davila, Bri Elliott, Raegan Townsend, and Joseph Trezek in Sarah Faust’s Spring 2021 Graphic Design course.
SSCAC is proud to showcase this archive, and we share our thanks to students who brought this to life! We hope you enjoy.
