This month’s Artists at Work Forum introduces Studio Chicago, a year-long collaboration focusing on the artist’s studio and production through exhibitions, talks, publications, tours, and research taking place throughout the city. Participating organizations will celebrate the working artist and reveal their sites of creative production from historical and contemporary perspectives, including concepts ranging from the “studio as muse”, “virtual studios”, “street as studio”, and “gallery as studio”.

This forum is a great opportunities for artists and the “art-curious” to learn about the initiative’s key components and how to participate. Presenters will include curator Dominic Molon, Museum of Contemporary Art; Mary Jane Jacob, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; Barbara Koenen, Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs; Chuck Thurow, Hyde Park Art Center; and Shannon Stratton, Three Walls.

Informal discussion will continue at a post-reception at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Studio Chicago’s lead participating organizations are the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA); the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC); the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA); Columbia College Chicago (CCC); Hyde Park Art Center (HPAC); and Three Walls (3W).
