2015 Chicago Artadia Awards

The Fund for Art and Dialogue is now accepting applications for the 2015 Chicago Artadia Awards from all visual artists who have lived and worked throughout Cook County, IL for two years or more. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all visual media and at any stage in their career are strongly encouraged to apply. Artadia Awardees are selected through a two-tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading curators and artists. A preliminary panel will evaluate all online submissions and select 10 finalists in early August. A second panel of curators will visit Chicago in late August to conduct studio visits with each finalist and select Awardees to receive unrestricted Artadia Awards between $5,000 and $20,000. The 2015 Chicago Awardees will be announced and exhibited at EXPO Chicago, September 17 – 20.

The Chicago Artadia Awards are:

– Open to anyone living in Cook County
– Free of application fees and project outline requirements
