Getting Archived in Englewood and Bronzevile

Sixty spent the past two Saturdays on Chicago’s South Side archiving the work of artists and spaces across the city.  One thing you may not know about these events is that they don’t just open the door for artists to have their work included in the archive, but they also allow for the Sixty team to dig up the stacks and stacks of ephemera we collect as we travel across the city to document and experience the work that you all are making. Just to give you a sense of what we’ve done so far, here is a list of a several of the files we have started or added to in the past two weeks (not including the recent articles published on our website):

  • Alcatraz Chicago
  • Arts Incubator at Washington Park
  • Claire Ashley
  • Paul Branton
  • Rashayla Marie Brown
  • Design Cloud
  • Alexandria Eregbu
  • Krista Franklin
  • Allison Glenn
  • Lisa Goesling
  • Jason Judd
  • Angee Lennard (of Spudnik Press Cooperative)
  • The Mission Projects
  • Eric Nix
  • Frederick Owens
  • Packer Schopf Gallery
  • South Side Community Art Center
  • Jan Tichy
  • Irene B. Wilson
  • Avery R. Young
  • …and so many more.

And that’s only the beginning.

Remember, you can send in your work digitally to art@chipublib.org or visit us at one of the upcoming archiving events in Rogers Park (June 8th) or in Little Village (June 15th) where we will be offering free portfolio reviews by JC Steinbrunner (Artist, Editor at Chicago Artists Resource and Founder of The Salon Series Project) and  Jenny Lam (Writer, independent curator and artist) Find more information about the events and how to RSVP for a portfolio review here.
