As the 2015–2016 artist-in-residence for Museum Education, Chicago artist Alberto Aguilar worked in the Ryan Education Center and several galleries through the summer. Aguilar’s creative practice often incorporates found materials as well as exchanges with his family, artists, and other people he encounters. His work bridges media from painting and sculpture to video, installation, performance, and sound, and has been exhibited at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the Queens Museum, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.
