Jeff Stevenson - Chicago Art Open
Jeff Stevenson’s artwork has been chosen for the Chicago Art Open, a centerpiece of Chicago Artists' Month, a citywide celebration of the visual arts held each October. Thousands of art enthusiasts and visitors attend Chicago Art Open public programs, which include an Opening Benefit, special tours, family days, and panel discussions. In 2007, more than 5,000 people attended the exhibition and related programs.
The Chicago Art Open accepts features the work of approximately 300 artists in all mediums, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, video, and installation. Each year, a panel of guest curators reviews all submitted work and designates approximately 10% as "Curator's Choice." All work in the exhibition is for sale, and many artists make valuable connections with local collectors, curators, and art professionals as a result of their involvement.
The 11th Annual Chicago Art Open, the largest survey of Chicagoland visual artists, will move to the Merchandise Mart during this year’s Chicago Artists’ Month from October 3-19, 2008.
