Kara Cobb Johnson
A cap-stone program for artists who are ready to push their practice to the next level, The Center Program is the Art Center’s answer to traditional professional development offerings for artists. The Center Program offers the unique opportunity to develop new work, receive feedback from professionals in the field, and work towards an exhibition to be held in the Art Center's main gallery. Over the course of six months, a supportive peer network, guest artists, gallerists, critics, and professionals push Center Program artists to answer tough questions, evolve their art, and ultimately produce strong, new work to show.
The 2015 Front & Center exhibition is guest curated by Tricia Van Eck.
Prior to starting 6018North, Van Eck was Associate Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art,Chicago (MCA) where for 13 years she organized more than 70 exhibitions and programs, much of which were experimental, audience engaged, performative, or extended the MCA's reach into the community.
