This week, Chicago Public Radio's program Eight Forty-Eight is doing reports on the question that has plagued Chicago artists for years and years: should you stay in Chicago to work on your art, or head to New York or LA to make your fame? They'll be doing reports on the state of Chicago theater, the visual arts, the music community, and film in Chicago every weekday morning this week (Eight Forty-Eight airs on WBEZ between 9:30 and 11:00), and a live call-in show will air this Sunday night at 7:00 PM.
