Rules to follow

-Please note that pictures that are blurry in full view will not be accepted.(unless there is an artistic reason behind it, which it then needs to be placed in the "Art of Chicago" section or if it is photoshopped please place it into "Photoshopped and off the radar")
-Works that are inappropriate will not be accepted. (nudity is OK as people should have their filters on, however pornography or any material like that will not be tolerated)
-Only submit one piece per week.
-Submit things to the appropriate sections, if you really feel the need to be in the featured section, send a note to the group or zgradis directly. Featured should be the best of the best.
-No negative art (IE violence self harm or anything along those lines)
-If you submit to "Art from Chicagoins" you must have Chicago listed as a residence on your profile.

Remember this is a place to support Chicago artists, not a place to shock and awe. It is also a place where we should show the world how wonderful Chicago is, to show her beauty to the rest of the world. Finally, please don't submit random stuff because you want to make yourself more popular (If thats why your on an art site your doing it for the wrong reasons). There are plenty of places (groups) to do any of these things I've listed. I hope you understand!
Thanks :)
Upcoming art faire & auction at the Garden Gallery in Tinley Park. The event "Arts for Dance" is a charity event to support Dancing Classrooms Southern Chicago June 14-15. We're currently seeking local artists to both donate work for the private art auction and to join in the faire by renting space to sell their work. I was hoping you would be willing to spread the word to the artists in this group that might interested in participating in our event.

Please feel free to take a look at our website for more information or email me with any questions you may have.

Hope to hear from you soon,
Lynzi Scholz

**The Dancing Classrooms program was piloted in the South East Elementary school, located in Evergreen Park, in the 2012/2013 school year. After the enormous success of the program we have been asked implement the program throughout District 124 and are in talks with additional districts in the Southern Cook County area to bring DCSC to an additional 20 schools in the 2013/2014 school year. The Heart & Sole Dance Foundation assists schools by covering half of the $3500 per class cost of the program. Money is raised by generous donations made by community members and fundraisers.**

Hello. :) I don't mean to be a bother, but I'm planning on moving to Chicago in the next couple of years. Is anyone who is a resident of the city able to tell me what the neighborhood  around the John Hancock tower is named?

It is considered the Near North Side.
