CHICAGO archives + Artists Festival: art design
The Chicago Archives + Artists Festival celebrates archives and special collections that document marginalized voices. For the second annual year of the project, the Art Design Chicago edition, three contemporary Chicago artists create original artworks in response to an archival collection with strong ties to the city's artistic legacy. The works debut at the festival July 13-14 at the Read/Write Library, 914 N. California Ave. in Humboldt Park.
This project is an ongoing initiative of Sixty Inches From Center, an arts publication and archiving initiative supporting non-mainstream artists.
