WTTW’s Chicago Tonight has begun an ongoing series highlighting Chicago’s unique art scene, ensuring that out-of-sight artists and venues are top of mind during the state’s shelter-in-place order. First in the series is the Ed Paschke Art Center in Jefferson Park.
Paschke (BFA 1961, MFA 1970, HON 1990), also known as “Mr. Chicago,” was an SAIC alum and member of the Chicago Imagists. Chicago Tonight walks viewers through his namesake center, highlighting everything from a replica of his studio to his polarizing contribution to the city’s Cows on Parade exhibition in 1999.
Chicago Tonight airs daily at 10:00 p.m. CT on WTTW Prime. The Ed Paschke segment is now available to view online.
