Hyde Park Art Center (5020 S. Cornell) proudly presents “Embedded: Artist as Citizen,” a mural installation by artist and educator Dorian Sylvian in Gallery 5 from January 28 - July 29, 2018. The 80-foot wall will serve as a tribute to William “Bill” Walker (1927 – 2011), a prolific artist and leading figure in Chicago’s Black Arts Movement in the 1960s, best known for his work on the iconic 1967 “Wall of Respect” on Chicago’s South Side. A public reception for “Embedded: Artist as Citizen” will be held on Sunday, May 6 from 3-5 p.m.
