This March, John E. Bannon, Chicago-based multimedia artist/educator and University of Illinois alumnus, began his journey as the inaugural resident artist at Allerton, living on-site to fully engage with and seek inspiration from the art, history, and nature of Allerton Park. Bannon has work in public and private collections worldwide, and plans to create something for Allerton that incorporates the already unique and unexpected experiences of the Park.
