Lillstreet Rooftop Project Space
Artists are invited to install work onto four, 9-foot flag poles on top of Lillstreet’s rooftop deck and garden. Flags as well as alternative installation proposals will be considered. Work can be seen from the CTA Montrose Brown Line elevated tracks and Metra Train tracks, as well as Montrose and Ravenswood Avenues. Installations rotate monthly, May through December and work is displayed indoors prior to install date. Cash prizes are awarded to Best In Show ($500) and Honorable Mention ($150) artists. Photo documentation will be provided to all participating artists, as well as opportunities for artist receptions. All work will be archived on the Lillstreet Art Center gallery page and in the Textile Department's hallway gallery.
Extended Deadline: February 27, 2015. Proposals (just a proposal is due on the 27th along with online application) will be reviewed by Camille Canales, Director of Textile Department and Nora Renick-Rinehart, 2014-2015 Artist-in Residence. You can find out more by clicking on the LillStreet Website here.

I hope everyone has a fun and happy Valentines Day! Of the many things that are going on this month I wish to mention two. Ausrine Kerr is having a show titled "Hat or a Crown" at her studio and gallery space in Evanston IL starting Valentines Day and running through March 5th, 2015 (see picture below for announcement information). Also, we will be holding our next Illinois SDA meeting at her gallery on Saturday February 28th 2015 at 11am. You should all be receiving an email announcement in the next couple days. So, if you don't get a chance to come see her show earlier you can see it at the meeting.
