Over the last few weeks, our staff has been hard at work converting over 100 press releases into data that can be displayed on Chicago Art Map. We’ll be posting a printable guide shortly, but if you visit the site, you’ll be able to use our software to filter by venue type (alternative space, commercial gallery or school), by geographical region, and you can even see the gallery via Google street view.
On the calendar tab, you can sort by event type, neighborhood and date. We have 620 venues listed currently, with searchable archives.
As trivia, Chicago Art Map was launched before Chicago Art Magazine, while I was still doing Art Talk Chicago. The name of the magazine was Chicago Art Map. We changed the name and started a second URL for Chicago Art Magazine in 2009.
