Chicago Artists Resource Survives the Cultural Plan

All is not lost: Chicago Artist Resource (CAR) lives! Albeit, through a private organization--Chicago's Artist Coalition. Formerly a city funded operation housed in the Cultural Center, CAR furnishes artists form the music, dance, theater, literary and visual Arts worlds alike, with job posts, calls for artists, and a directory of spaces, as well as artist and arts professional stories. CAR got the boot from the city programming along with Chicago Publishes within the terms of the new Cultural Plan. CARandCAC1.jpeg

What's most important, perhaps, is that it's centralized; literary folks can look for jobs and learn about networking opportunities, plus read about an upcoming visual art opening that features a comics artist they'd like to collaborate with. When Chicago's art worlds collide they are made better and more diverse, and it's nice to know that there's a place where such permeability will be fostered, even if it's in a tiny way and on the internet.

 
Gapers Block presents Tuesday Funk, Chicago's ecclectic monthly reading series.
