Call for Artists & Vendors for May 18th event: A City Divided
Chicago Creatives: We invite you to submit to show your artwork or host a table with us at our upcoming event, A City Divided! We encourage artists to share work that unpacks divisive issues that Chicago faces, why they divide us, and what can help us overcome them. Works that are inspired by what unifies Chicago are also welcome. 100% of profits will benefit nonprofits addressing issues that divide us.
