Her exhibition comprises a selection of 15 large-scale relief prints, 11 artist books and eight collages from the last 10 years. The exhibition is curated by Doug Stapleton, associate curator of art at the Illinois State Museum. “I am thrilled to host this exhibition of Jeanine Coupe Ryding’s work curated by Doug Stapleton,” said Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibits at Elmhurst Collee. “Both the curator and artist will discuss the exhibition at the public reception, which should provide great insight into the work.” Ryding's prints and artist books are in museum and private collections throughout the U.S., Europe and Japan.

  6. Chicago Rink Rats: The Golden Age of Roller Skating

    August 10, 2018, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM

    In the wake of the Great Depression and into the 1970s, America found itself with a new pastime: roller skating. At the height of The Golden Age in 1950, roller skating became the number one participatory sport in America with nearly 5,000 roller rinks and 18 million skaters—and Chicago was the epicenter of it all. Take a nostalgic trip to the glory days of roller skating to learn about the "rink rats"—the regulars at the legendary skating venues with names like The Elm, Arcadia, Riverview, Lombard, The Savoy, and others. Hear first-person accounts from skaters and view images and eclectic artifacts, from skating jackets and gear to competition medals, posters, and memorabilia. Inspired by the book by author and skater Tom Russo.
