If someone where to start a new art magazine, what do you thing should be in it? What would you not want to see?

The exhibition will include graffiti art, photography, graphic art and paintings by CHema Skandal!, Kill Monster Kill, FLASH, and Francisco Rosado. The artists, most of which are longtime residents, all live in Logan Square and are Latino.

The exhibition curator, Francisco Rosado, says that he conceptualized the group show as the Logan Square Dream Artist Union, Inc. after being “inspired by living in this neighborhood as an artist for a decade and never seeing a gallery close by.” Rosado came up with the idea for the exhibition based on his vision of creating a supportive network for neighborhood artists.

“The mostly Latino section of Milwaukee Avenue, where the gallery is located, made me think of using the show as a medium to gather Latino artists of the area to showcase their art, network, and create similar events that could bring together not only artists and art lovers, but the local people that fill the city blocks around the gallery as well. This exhibition is about the need for diversity of perspectives, but also about solidarity, freedom, gathering and love for the arts.”

Made In Logan Square will be on display from May 3 to May 31, 2012. The gallery is free and open to the public on Tuesdays through Thursdays, from noon to 6 pm, and on Friday and Saturday, from noon to 4pm and by appointment. The gallery is closed on Sundays and Mondays.

it's really nice to see a community put themselves out there like this. Chicago seems like a blossoming city. There is no better advertisement for a city and it's cultural milieu then the artists and the people surrounding the art world.

With fear of overstepping my boundaries here I would like to invite you to check out http://travel.mediamatic.net and virtually dive in to the hidden cultural worlds of cities all around the world. (and Chicago does not have a representative yet - just putting it out there)

Anyway again very nice to see a city and it's inhabitants building up a community in which they connect and keep each other up to date.
