The 20th Annual Chicago Artists Month highlights the work of hundreds of artists throughout Chicago with performances, exhibitions, open studios, tours and neighborhood art walks. October 1 - November 15, 2015, Chicago Artists Month (CAM) will invite residents and visitors to meet artists and see their work at venues across Chicago. As the world comes to Chicago to discuss the state of architecture, the CAM 2015 theme The City as Studio looks at Chicago as a place for investigation, experimentation, innovation and production, and encourages a dialogue with the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial opening in October.
Chicago Artists Month is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) in collaboration with the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Public Library. In-kind support from Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises®, Inc.
Meet artists, see their work and make your own at 300+ events across the city.
Art on Ashland
Art on Ashland is one of the events scheduled for Chicago Artists Month 2015. On November 7, this unique art walk will connect the work of artists and creative organizations in Chicago's East Village neighborhood. Each local organization is curating its own space. This event will bring patrons not only into creativity-fostering spaces, but also into the surrounding environment. We invite viewers to see the city differently -- as a studio environment for artists.
