Join the Elmhurst Art Museum for a lecture about the history and legacy of Chicago Imagism. Fifty years after they began exhibiting their creative works, Chicago’s community of 1960s artists are attracting renewed interest. 

Art critic and curator Deven Golden talks about the evolution of art in Chicago from the postwar era to the end of the twentieth century, drawing on his own experience as an exhibiting artist and curator of exhibitions held at the Chicago Cultural Center, Hyde Park Art Center, Randolph Street Gallery, and others, before relocating to New York in 1991.

This event is free with museum admission.
