From 2010 to 2012, I AM Logan Square presented the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival on Logan Square. In 2013 & 2014 the decision was made to hold the festival in another location. Now we return home with a renewed focus and mission : to help save the symbol of this neighborhood,
The Illinois Centennial Monument.
The inaugural Logan Square Arts Festival will feature art installations across the neighborhood, great local music, craft beer, food from neighborhood restaurants, and cocktails from The Whistler.
A portion of every gate donation will go to Logan Square Preservation and their ongoing efforts to restore The Illinois Centennial Monument.
The Logan Square Arts Festival will be a celebration of the creativity and diversity of Logan Square.
Come join us June 26th, 27th and 28th.

I AM Logan Square is a 501(c) 3, not-for-profit organization that promotes and supports the arts and cultural development of Chicago’s vibrant Logan Square neighborhood.
CALL FOR ARTISTS
The Arts component of the festival will include an Art Crawl with local businesses and galleries hosting individual or a collaboration of artists in their spaces. The IALS team along with representatives from other local galleries will form the selection committee and will also be tasked with matching artists with participating venues. Artists and their gallery partner will be responsible for organizing installation and de-installation of the exhibit. We encourage all artists to be present at their pop-up exhibit during the festival to interact with the community viewing and provide cards or other contact information for interested parties – no sales will take place through IALS or the host venue (so if someone is interested, they will deal directly with you, and you will make 100% of your sale price!).
We are seeking Chicago artists that have a cohesive body of work in any easily hang-able media. Please keep in mind that we serve the community – so the art that the committee selects will be appropriate for general public viewing. Along with the application we ask for images of 6 works that you see as finished work ready to represent you as an artist to the public. All host locations need to be within Logan Square.
This provides a great introduction to showing your work and gaining exposure. You will also get your name out there – all artists and businesses will be printed on our art crawl map. Your work will also be seen by multiple local art galleries and organizations – starting relationships that could lead to future collaborations and shows.
Please submit your application and images to info@IAmLoganSquare.com by May 1, 2015, please write “LSAF Artist Submission” in the subject line. Those applications accepted will be notified by May 29, 2015.
