“What’s Your Art?” | SIFC & WBEZ Celebrate Chicago’s Art Centers

For the inaugural Collective Project, Sixty Inches from Center is collaborating with WBEZ for “What’s Your Art?”: Celebrating the Art Centers of Chicago as part of the Off Air Series to showcase unique art centers within our city.  This showcase is our effort to bring attention to the art centers that are doing great things in our neighborhoods.  We also want to provide these art centers with the chance to get out of their home space and come together at the Chicago Cultural Center in order to interact with new audiences and each other.

Join us on Saturday, June 4th from 1-5 pm at the Chicago Cultural Center for “What’s Your Art?”: Celebrating the Art Centers of Chicago where ten art centers will be replicating their centers on-site, under one roof. Throughout the afternoon, visitors will have an opportunity to interact with representatives from centers spanning all areas of the city.
From stone carving to printmaking to multi-media video production, each center will demonstrate the activities offered at their space and that enrich their communities. “What’s Your Art?” is free to the public and is an opportunity for Chicago residents to experience art as a part of daily life. Visit each Center’s Collective Project page to find out more about classes and events that will be held in the months before the “What’s Your Art?” event.

Between now and June 4th visit any of the 10 Art Centers and pick up a “What’s Your Art?” validation card, then see how many centers you can visit between now and June 4th. Prizes for those who visit 2,4,6,8, or all 10, there will be award at the June 4th event.
