The 20th annual Chicago Artists Month (CAM) celebrates the City as Studio
From October 1 – November 15, 2015, join this community-contributed showcase of Chicago's artists and creatives and experience art in the parks, dance in the neighborhoods, installations in the alley, and concerts on the front porch.
With its 2015 theme, “The City as Studio,” CAM 2015 is in dialogue with the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial. As the world comes to Chicago to discuss the state of architecture, CAM presents artists, architects, designers, performers, makers and other creatives who look at the City as a place for experimentation, innovation and production
