Hyde Park Art Center Free Admission Sunday

Free Admission Sunday from 11am to 4pm at Hyde Park Art Center - see INFO below. Robert Earl Paige (b.1936, Chicago) is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and educator actively making work that challenges the distinction between fine art and craft by combining elements from African aesthetic traditions, modernist painting, Bauhaus architecture, and vernacular invention in his objects, collages, and fabrics. He earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and began his career working for the architectural design firm Skidmore Owings and Merrill before transitioning to creating commercial objects and fashion. He has partnered with commercial enterprises such as the Italian fashion house Fiorio and Sears, Roebuck and Co. department stores to produce scarves and interior decor respectively. His signature line the Dakkabar Collection was sold nationwide in over one hundred Sears stores and included several bedroom and home furnishing pieces inspired by West African imagery with a contemporary palette in the 1970s.
