To support “Chicago Archives + Artists Project: Art Design Chicago Edition”, a two-day public symposium highlighting Chicago archives and special collections, in order to raise awareness of and access to archives and special collections that contain materials documenting Chicago’s art and design history, and to grow Chicago’s current archival holdings by documenting and archiving the personal papers of contemporary Chicago artists. As a part of the project, Sixty Inches from Center is commissioning three contemporary Chicago artists, who are creating original artwork responding to a Chicago-focused archival collection.
