Calling all artists! 50x50 Neighborhood Arts Project (Chicago,IL)
2017 is the Year of Public Art in Chicago!
is now accepting applications for the 50x50 Neighborhood Arts Project,
which will provide up to $1 million to create new public artworks
throughout the city's neighborhoods.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel
and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events
(DCASE) have designated 2017 the "Year of Public Art." The 50x50
initiative was inspired by Chicago's 50 wards and the 50th anniversary
of two of the city's most iconic public artworks--the Picasso in Daley
Plaza and the Wall of Respect which once stood on the South Side.
painters, photographers and sculptors--interested in brightening and
enhancing the city-- are invited to submit their qualifications for the
project at bit.ly/2jcP8wz before February 24.
more information on the Year of Public Art, including a year of
exhibitions, performances, tours and other public events, visit cityofchicago.org/yopa.
