The successful curatorial candidates will ensure that the following goals of the project are met:
  • Creatively activate spaces and sites to attract residents and visitors to explore Chicago's visual arts scene.
  • Showcase works of art that are innovative and engage participants and audiences in dynamic, interactive, and creative ways
