Tom Torluemke: Fearsome Fable—Tolerable Truth

TOM TORLUEMKE: FEARSOME FABLE—TOLERABLE TRUTH

Immerse yourself in Torluemke’s 170-foot interactive mural, which tells two stories—one of utopia and one of decay—at the Hyde Park Art Center.

DETAILS:

1/20–4/28 One of Chicago’s best underknown artists makes alluring carnivalesque sculptures and paintings that reveal the perversity of political systems. The native Chicagoan deserves a career survey—he’s been at it for over 30 years—but for now we’ll happily engage his new 170-foot mural, which viewers can manipulate to determine a future civic history. 5020 S Cornell. hydeparkart.org.
