The Cleve Carney Museum of Art (CCMA), at 425 Fawell Blvd. on the College of DuPage campus, will open its season with "Tony Fitzpatrick: Jesus of Western Avenue."
This will be the final museum exhibition by multimedia artist and celebrated Chicago resident Tony Fitzpatrick, who has been everything from a tattoo artist to a semi-pro boxer. Fitzpatrick has works in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Miami, and has also created album art for music icons such as Lou Reed, Steve Earle and The Neville Brothers.
Fitzpatrick is best known for his multimedia collages, printmaking, paintings and drawings. The free and public exhibition will run from Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021 to Sunday, Jan. 31, 2022.
"While Tony's artwork is deeply influenced by the Chicago area, it is recognized around the world," said Cleve Carney Museum of Art Curator Justin Witte in a statement. "Tony is one of the most well-known artists working in Chicago today and we are thrilled to be able to feature him as we launch our first full season at Cleve Carney Museum of Art."
