Date & Time

Rockefeller Chapel




Rockefeller Memorial Chapel


From fall 2016 to spring 2017, a range of free, interdisciplinary programs across campus will engage both scholarly and general audiences in the rich themes surrounding Concrete Happenings. Rockefeller Chapel will be home to an "arts lobby" for the autumn quarter, featuring the work of Harold Haydon and pointing to other Concrete Happenings events and programs (as part of the Chapel's hosting of more than 200,000 visitors per year).

Harold Haydon, alumnus, professor, and stained glass artist, whose work adorns Rockefeller Chapel, was a contemporary to Wolf Vostell, and head of Midway Studios, the art center on campus in 1970, when Concrete Traffic arrived at the University. Letters documenting Haydon’s foresight in acknowledging the historical significance of Concrete Traffic, along with the gift arrangement between the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the University will be on view, while documentary footage of the original installation of the sculpture on campus will be exhibited in the lobby to orient chapel visitors to the Concrete Happenings events throughout the campus. Opening September 30, 2016 at Rockefeller, until March 3, 2017.

10 am through 4:30 pm Tuesday through Friday | weekends during event hours
