The 2015 Chicago Artists Month theme is: The City as Studio CAM 2015 will be in dialogue with the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial (CAB). As the world comes to Chicago to discuss the state of architecture, CAM invites Chicago-based artists, architects, designers, performers, writers, arts and community organizations and other creatives to look at the City as a place for investigation, experimentation, innovation, and production.
We get our inspiration from the studio and beyond the studio; in our neighborhood and beyond our neighborhood; in Chicago and beyond Chicago; internally and externally; and beyond. What is your definition of “BEYOND THE STUDIO”? Is it where you get inspiration? Is it where you escape? Is it where you create in a different way?
