The Art Center Highland Park Covid 19 Message: (April v. 2)

This is a time where sometimes it is hard to smile.  We have all learned to be creative about how we communicate and connect with those we work with, take art classes from, or someone we love.  At this time of social distancing remember to connect with your creative side.  Many art museums around the world offer virtual visits, you can go to the opera on-line, or even watch penguins explore the Shedd Aquarium.

Our first suggestion, visit The Art Center Highland Park Virtual Gallery to see the current exhibition, Love and Collaboration, an exciting and engaging exhibition.  We need more love and collaboration right now!

To move outside HP check out Google’s Arts & Culture platform, where many Chicago institutions offer digitized access to their exhibits and in some cases an interactive “explore” function that allows you to virtually stroll from room to room at will.

The list includes downtown’s Adler PlanetariumShedd AquariumField Museum, and Art Institute of Chicago as well as smaller neighborhood museums like Washington Park’s DuSable Museum of African American History, the National Museum of Mexican Art in Pilsen, the IIT Institute of Design, and University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute.

All of us at The Art Center Highland Park wish you smiles during this difficult time.  With our underwriting sponsor NorthShore University HealthSystem we help you stay safe.

Be Well!
