Art Design Chicago

In 2018, the Terra Foundation for American Art launched Art Design Chicago, an ongoing initiative that amplifies Chicago’s art and design legacy through hundreds of exhibitions, talks, tours, publications, and other special events. To complement the initiative, Sixty designed an editorial project that explored the nuances of these histories alongside The Ladydrawers Comic Collective, On the Real Film, Postloudness, and Sixty’s writers, editors, and photographers. Through essays, interviews, photography, short videos, a podcast series, and illustrated stories, we offered a distinct lens through which to experience the stories at the edges of ADC’s inaugural roster of programs and projects. Since then, we’ve collaborated with Terra to develop interviews, videos, reflections, photo essays, and more as part of Art Design Chicago Now.
