21 Artists: Chicago Loop Project

21 Artists’ inaugural Chicago Loop project was held in an empty storefront space in downtown Chicago in February 2013 around the theme of creative process.

The Chicago Loop space

The project brought together twenty-one musicians, painters, dancers, poets and performers in a vacant storefront for twenty-one days, providing workshops, events, performances and studio experiences, culminating in a final exhibition in February 2013. Artists who participated revolved their work around quotations that were meaningful to their creative processes. Held in partnership with the Chicago Loop Alliance, each artist was given the storefront space for a day in the middle of Chicago’s cold, winter months to create a piece of work, either on their own or in collaboration with other artists or audiences.
