Harold Washington Library
In partnership with Chicago Public Library, Sixty Inches From Center is helping preserve the legacy of the art that our organization supports by contributing our content directly to the Chicago Artists Archive housed there. This partnership allows us to continue shaping the art history of Chicago and address the changing landscape of the art world. Starting in April of 2011, we began regularly contributing the content of our website to the archive, creating files for each artist. These files will be openly on view at the Harold Washington Library. We will also be working with the Harold Washington Library to investigate the best practices in new media archiving and documentation. Learn how to “Get Archived” HERE.

In partnership with Clarion New Media, Sixty Inches From Center is provided in kind support that includes media direction and video production.


“Going Mobile”
On October 30, 2010 to celebrate our launch, the Sixty team traveled around the city to different events and exhibits with a mobile art installation.  Participating collaborators included The Chicago Urban Art Society, Elastic Arts Foundation, Hyde Park Art Center and The South Side Community Art Center. Clarion New Media was there to document the event.
