Ground Floor spotlights the most promising artists who have recently emerged from Chicago’s top level MFA programs. The survey exhibition, now in its second iteration, will present a body of work by 12 artists from a broad range of schools that offer graduate level fine art degrees, including the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois, Northwestern University, Columbia College, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Filling the three galleries that make up the entire ground floor of the Hyde Park Art Center, the included artworks illustrate the exciting state of these artists’ careers. This biannual show of new art and artists brings together under one roof the stylistic trends and innovative talent currently being produced throughout the city, raising the question of whether there is a decisive Chicago style evident in art being produced right now.
