The Gallery within the Gordon Parks Arts Hall promotes artistic and cultural awareness by exhibiting works of art for the Laboratory Schools, the University of Chicago, and the broader Chicago community. It serves to amplify our aesthetic and intellectual life on campus both by displaying the work of Lab students, faculty, and alumni, and by holding special exhibits. A focal point within the integrated arts environment fostered by Gordon Parks Hall, the gallery provides a forum for promoting visual acuity and for discussing a wide range of questions, both formal and cultural.
The Senior Art Exhibition is a culmination of the student’s work in various mediums, from digital art and photography, to traditional painting and drawing, to three dimensional and installation-based works. Seniors have been working in various mediums with a diverse range of approaches and styles as evident in this show. Working alongside Lab’s Visual Arts HS Faculty; Mirentxu Ganzarain, Benjamin Jaffe, Sunny Neater-Dubow, Ana Romero and Brian Wildeman, seniors have been mentored on various artistic practices and then turned loose to explore their own approach to art making. This creative freedom has allowed students to create work that is uniquely theirs, enjoy!
