    Artist-in-Residence Special Event

    Small Start, Big Impact with the Knight Cities Challenge

    Thursday, Oct 15, 2015 5:30 - 6:30 PM @ Pioneer Court
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE SPECIAL EVENT - The Artist-in-Residence program is designed to engage and expose the city of Chicago to a local emerging artist or organization through the creation of a public art installation.

    Each year, the Knight Cities Challenge invites a wide range of people to submit innovative ideas for making the 26 Knight communities more vibrant places to live and work. Join two of the challenge’s recent winners—Jason Roberts and Isis Ferguson—in the Thick City Pavilion for a discussion of their innovative solutions designed to attract increased investment and new people to two Midwestern communities: Akron, Ohio, and Gary, Indiana. With a closer look at Roberts’ Better Block AirBnb and Ferguson’s ArtHouse: A Social Kitchen, you’ll learn about how to identify and make the most of the unique people, places and architecture that define every community.

    *This event will be held outside. Please wear appropriate clothing.
