2015 Call for Artists!

2015 Call for Artists!
Deadline Extended to 5pm on November 12, 2014.

The Arts on Chicago initiative returns in 2015 for another exciting year of creative placemaking projects along Chicago Avenue!

Arts on Chicago will continue to implement art projects to knit together existing creative assets in the Central, Powderhorn, Bancroft, Bryant communities along Chicago Avenue from 32nd Street to 42nd Street, using the process to build a framework for the ongoing support of a vibrant arts and cultural district. Our neighborhoods already have creative assets like artists, public spaces, arts organizations, and arts-related businesses. Arts on Chicago’s creative placemaking furthers the use of the arts in neighborhood locations to encourage social interaction and connection, support the growth of local businesses and safer streets, and to promote a sense of neighborhood identity and ownership.

Through the support of VSA of Minnesota, Arts on Chicago will select two projects by artists who are based in our target neighborhoods and who have disabilities or are working with and/or alongside individuals with disabilities to create this project.

$5,000 Awards for creative placemaking projects in South Minneapolis.
