about

Whitney Bradshaw is an artist, educator, curator, social worker and mother. Bradshaw has been the chair of the visual art conservatory at ChiArts (the Chicago High School for the Arts) since fall of 2012 where she also teaches AP Photography to juniors and seniors. She was formerly the assistant curator of the renowned LaSalle Bank Photography Collection and the curator of photography for the Bank of America Collection. As a curator, she developed more than 40 exhibitions, which have been loaned to museums throughout the United States, Central and South America, Europe and Asia. While curating for 13 years, Bradshaw was an adjunct professor in the photography department at Columbia College Chicago where she taught both graduate and undergraduate courses in theory and criticism, color photography, and various senior seminars. She received an MFA in photography in 2001. In 2003, she had a solo exhibition of her Scar series at the International Museum of Surgical Science. After focusing many years on parenting, curating, and teaching Bradshaw is back in the studio and deeply invested in her work. In the Fall of 2018 Bradshaw had a solo exhibition of her Outcry project at the DePaul Art Museum. This exhibition was written up in the Chicago Tribune and her process for this social practice project was illustrated on a segment for public TV, WTTW's, Chicago Tonight. She also had a solo show of Outcry at the Tarble Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University and at The Show Gallery in the Twin Cities, both in 2019. The latter was reviewed on MPR's Art Hounds and in the Star Tribune. Her photographs can be found in the permanent collections of the DePaul Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Columbia College Chicago, several private collections, and have been published and/or reviewed in the New York Times, Columbia College's 6x6 series, Time Out New York, New City, the MCA Chicago catalog for The Freedom Principle: Experiments in Art and Music 1965-Now, and the Chicago Tribune. In 1991 Bradshaw attained a BA in Sociology with a minor in Women's Studies from Eastern Illinois, a program she spearheaded and was one of the first to graduate with a degree in. She also worked in various capacities as a social worker across the city of Chicago. In 2001 she was named one of the top 10 MFA candidates and awarded the College Art Association Regional MFA Exhibition at UIC's Gallery 400. Some of her artwork can be viewed at whitneybradshaw.com
