This seminar will examine the origins, history, legacy, artists, works, and meanings of the Chicago-born contemporary mural movement. Through weekly readings, slide presentations, several site visits, and class discussions on the theoretical, artistic, and material development of the still-evolving Chicago community-based public art scene, we will explore its role in urban neighborhoods and its place in a larger national and public art context. Ten sessions.
Jeff Huebner is a Chicago-based art writer and journalist, who writes frequently on public art and murals. He’s a longtime contributor to the Chicago Reader and Public Art Review, among many publications, and has authored several books on Chicago-area murals.
A course pack of materials, compiled by the instructor and distributed during the first class, for which there will be a nominal fee.
- Reading materials for the first class will be distributed digitally before the meeting, in the confirmation email.
