Project Space: Empty storefront
21 Artists: Chicago Loop 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 on the 22nd of February, 2013. Artists who participated revolved their work around quotations that were meaningful to their creative process.
The inaugural project for 21 Artists, Chicago Loop, was held in an empty storefront space in Chicago’s downtown loop area of the city 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. Featured artists included:
Core Project Chicago
Rebecca Hamlin Green
Hornbread (Sam Trump & David Ben-Porat)
Lindsay E. Schirk
