Going Mobile: The SIFC Launch Event

After spending a long summer preparing for one day, SIFC is ready to present itself to the Chicago art world. Making stops at four different locations throughout Chicago, the Going Mobile event was designed to give exposure to each of these venues, highlight Chicago artists and give people a taste of what Sixty Inches From Center: Chicago Arts Archive and Collective Project is all about.

For this event SIFC Team members are touring the city in the SIFC truck, sporting canvases designed by artists Hebru Brantley and Brooks Golden, and documenting works all over the city and sharing it with others. Join us on October 30th as we visit, several arts events in the city.

At each stop the SIFC team will be documenting the community events, the art on display, talking with artists, curators and patrons. We want you to participate; have your picture taken in our photo booth, view the art that is happening else where on our truck projection and tell us what art means to you.
