Visiting Artist Program @ Stevenson High School

The Visiting Artist Program at Stevenson High School connects students to professional visual artists through gallery exhibits and artist presentations (ARTalks). Created over 20 years ago by Stevenson emeritus faculty member, John DePinto, the Visiting Artist Program aims to feature a range of diverse artists, styles, and mediums throughout the school year, providing our students with opportunities to interact with and learn from professional art and artists.

Annually, six artists are selected to exhibit for 6-7 weeks in Stevenson’s Visiting Artist Gallery. Occasionally, artists from outside the Chicagoland area present online Digital Exhibitions. During the course of their exhibition, each artist visits two visual arts classrooms for ARTalks to discuss their work, concepts, and process.

PART ONE: Exhibition (6-7 weeks)

The gallery measures 30ft. wide X 14ft. high X 7ft. deep with white walls and stainless steel accents. It is a walk-in space, with a security glass wall to protect the art works. Artists come to campus for load-in and load-out of the gallery. 

PART TWO: ARTalks (1 day, 2 talks)

Each Visiting Artist will be scheduled to present ARTalks to two visual artist classes. Presentations are approximately 35-minutes long and followed by a 10-minute Q&A.

PAYMENT: $450

APPLY: Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Interested artists should send a resume and links to work samples to Fine Arts Manager Amanda Peterlin (apeterlin@d125.org).  Please feel free to reach out with questions.
