Ald. Cappleman: Even More Art Coming To Uptown Thanks To Grant Money

From Ald. Cappleman's latest email:

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Dept. of Cultural Affairs & Special Events (DCASE) has designated 2017 as the "Year of Public Art". Each of the 50 wards is eligible for a $10,000 matching grant based on a commitment of using $10,000 in menu funds. This grant comes from Allstate Insurance Company and Terra Foundation for American Art through DCASE. Last December, Ald. Cappleman signed an agreement that will allow the 46th Ward to get the maximum amount for this grant in order to install a series of art projects throughout the ward. All interested artists who would like to submit a project are encouraged to apply. Click here for more information.

  1. Please. No more tile mosaics plastered onto inappropriate public building walls. No more bad wood carvings chain sawed out of dead tree trunks in public parks. No more peace garden memorials to controversial foreign cult leaders. Please. Could just have something pretty for a change????
