Chicago Artists Month 2010 Time Line for October



Chicago Artists Month is moving along and I'm sure your October plans are as well. As a program partner in this citywide celebration of Chicago's visual artists, I'd appreciate your cooperation and involvement in a few areas . . .


1. List your event by Friday, August 13!

Post the details of your approved Chicago Artists Month events on Chicago Artists Resource (CAR) by Friday, August 13 according to the directions attached. Please read them carefully. If you do not follow the posting directions, your event will not appear on our calendar. You must fill it out by the deadline in order to take advantage of the full benefits of being a Chicago Artists Month participant (ie. Lunch with an Artist program, invitation to the opening, and inclusion in online promotions).

2. Logo, Boilerplate and Website

We encourage you to participate in the collaborative marketing of Chicago Artist Month by using the attached logo and boilerplate in promotional pieces for your October event. Please add it to flyers, posters, postcards or related press releases to help link your event with the citywide program. Also, please include the logo and a link to www.chicagoartistsmonth.org on your website, e-blasts, facebook page etc.

You can also join us on Facebook at “Chicago Artists Month” for sample itineraries, updates, event announcements, and future deadlines.

3. September Information Meeting

Please mark your calendar for the Chicago Artists Month information meeting on Tuesday, September 14 at 5:30pm in the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington). At this meeting, you'll have the opportunity to meet other participants in Chicago Artists Month, find out about this year's exciting programs, and pick up brochures and posters.

Please R.S.V.P by 8/27 to rachel.buckmaster@cityofchicago.org
