Chicago Art MagazineJuly 6th, 2010
Chicago Art Magazine is a network of arts and culture websites. It now includes Chicago Art Magazine , which hosts news and features about the arts in Chicago (new content is posted each day), Chicago Art Map, a comprehensive map and calendar tool for visual art, and Chicago Art Collector, which showcases the spectrum of local art collectors and prominent collections. The network continues to expand and involve, and will soon include theater and film.
Chicago Art Magazine began as Art Talk Chicago, part of the Chicago Tribune-sponsored blog network, Chicago Now. Kathryn Born and her crew of staff and writers broke off and started their own, independent venture in the fall of 2009. The goal was simple, to create a media venture independent of an institution, one that strove to introduce new readers to the arts, and to provide valuable information for the community that already exists.
