Recession chronicles the only remaining Works Progress Administration art institution in the U.S., the South Side Community Art Center (SSCAC). SSCAC and SAIC have maintained a long history together as SAIC alumni founded the art center in the late ’30s. SSCAC’s impact was immeasurable as it served as one of the few venues where black artists could exhibit their work and engage in critical discourse. To honor its legacy, work will be shown by SAIC alumni and students, including Margaret Burroughs, Jonathan Green, and Archibald Motley, Jr.
