William Estrada

William’s art and teaching is a collaborative discourse of existing images, text, and politics that appoints the audience to critically re-examine public and private spaces. As a teacher, artist, and cultural worker he reports, records, reveals, and amplifies experiences you find in academic books, school halls, teacher lounges, kitchen tables, barrios, college campuses, and in the conversations of close friends to engage in radical imagination. William is currently engaging in collaborative work with the Mobilize Creative Collaborative, Chicago ACT Collective, and Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative.

Clara Fischer

Studio Fellow (2022)

I am a research-based artist who uses science fiction to talk about humanity’s relationship with nature and the impact this relationship has on food systems. My practice is an extension of my core belief for environmental justice and an examination of the destruction caused by agriculture. These passions are a reflection of my upbringing in rural New Jersey and my parents’ joy for the outdoors. My printmaking and material explorations delve into the extraordinary capabilities of plants and enthuse the vast unknowns of the plant world. I allow my interdisciplinary practice to be dictated by material and earth sciences.



Chris Flynn

Chris Flynn is an artist, printmaker and drummer from Chicago who earned his MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts from Columbia College Chicago in 2017. Since earning his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999, Flynn has been the Master Printer for Anchor Graphics, collaborating with an extensive range of artists and teaching printmaking to students of all ages and experience.


Chris Flynn’s current art practice builds on an open body of work entitled The Antigravity Puppet Project, which integrates sculptural papermaking and print media with percussion music and sound art. The Puppet is a self-portrait as a human-scale marionette, while The Antigravity Project is its dissection by image and sound. The figure, its fragmented image and its internal soundscape are played beside each other in translation games between graphic and musical forms, telling the allegory of the puppet through percussive sound composition, photogravures, visual scores and data glitches.

Aaron Hughes

I am an artist, curator, organizer, teacher, anti-war activist, and Iraq War veteran living in Chicago. ​I work collaboratively in diverse spaces and media to create meaning out of personal and collective trauma, deconstruct and transform systems of oppression, and seek liberation. Working through an interdisciplinary practice rooted in drawing and printmaking, I develop projects that deconstruct militarism and related institutions of dehumanization. These projects often utilize popular research strategies, experiment with forms of direct democracy, and operate in solidarity with the people most impacted by structural violence.

I work with a variety of art and activist projects including: Prison + Neighborhood Arts/Education Project, Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, About Face: Veterans Against the War, and the emerging Veteran Art Movement.
