Leo Segedin to Exhibit in the Link Gallery
Born in Chicago in 1927, Segedin grew up on the west side and attended Gregory Elementary School (which would show up 60 years later in a series of paintings) and Crane Tech High School. He received his BFA in 1948 and his MFA in 1950 (the first ever awarded for painting by the University of Illinois).
A closing reception and book signing of Leopold Segedin: A Habit of Art (2018) will be held on June 15 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM in the Link Gallery. Learn more about the artist’s work and career or watch a video about Segedin created by students at Columbia College Chicago.
