Panel | In Conversation with the Driehaus Museum’s A Tale of Today: Emerging Artist Fellows

  • April 11, 2021 2:30 pm CDT

    This program was live-streamed on Sunday, April 11th at 2:30pm. Please view a recording of the conversation above.

    This virtual panel discussion will explore the conceptual and programmatic impact of the Driehaus Museum’s A Tale of Today: Emerging Artists Fellowship on the work and trajectory of the museum’s Fellows. Now in its second pilot year, the Fellowship program supports promising and emerging talent from Chicago’s art community through a career-building opportunity to engage with the network and audience of the Driehaus Museum.

    The Fellowship is inspired by the many facets of the Nickerson Mansion, the Driehaus Museum’s home, but especially by the building’s legacy an incubator for learning as art students in the late 19th century were invited to study from the Nickerson’s extensive art collection and to utilize their art gallery as a place to develop and gain inspiration for their own work.

    We will discuss how the history and architecture of the Driehaus Museum inspired the works on view as well as the key insights the Fellows have gained from this experience.

    Presented in partnership with the Driehaus Museum.
