Advertising with Sixty Inches From Center offers you the unique opportunity to get your business or organization in front of an active and diverse crowd of Chicago’s art-minded population.  As a Chicago-focused arts organization, Sixty Inches From Center aims to secure advertising from the local Chicago businesses that continue to support artists through everything from the display of local work on your walls, the coffee and teas that keep them going and the products and services that keep them moving forward in their lives and creative practices.

About Sixty Inches From Center
Our mission is to document and engage visual arts in Chicago as they happen outside of institutional setting and make our efforts accessible to art-minded individuals inside and outside of Chicago.  We do that in two different ways.  First, our Chicago Arts Archive is a web-based catalog of art happening in our city.  Each week new articles are published on the website. Second, we partner with city organizations through the Collective Projects, which are events and activities that showcase the versatility of the visual arts in Chicago.  

Our Followers
Due to our eclectic team of writers, the wide range of art that we cover and our emphasis on cross-community collaboration, advertising with Sixty Inches From Center would allow your product to reach readers from all areas of Chicago.  The majority of our readers are 22 – 35 years old, arts-minded individuals who live everywhere from South Shore to Pilsen to Logan Square and Rogers Park.  We also have an international following with about 10% of our readers coming from the United Kingdom, France and Russia.
