Frozen Lenses is pleased to announce our statewide juried photography exhibition, Circumpolar. For many, the word “polar” conjures images of a volatile and extreme environment: isolated, wild and dangerous. However, some see these cautionary overtones as an invitation. Regardless of whether people come to escape the busy life of the city, test their grit in the face of the unknown or to simply experience the breathtaking beauty of a land largely untouched, one thing is for certain: the lure of the north is unrelenting, beckoning to adventure-seekers and lone wolves, alike. Frozen Lenses would like to see what it is that calls to you. Show us your vision of life, circumpolar.

2017 is the Year of Public Art in Chicago! The theme for the Year of Public Art is 50 x 50, which seeks to celebrate and create new public art in all 50 wards. In order to accomplish this, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has created a special program for Neighborhood Arts Projects.

Aldermen may opt in to the program by choosing to dedicate a portion of their 2017 menu allocation to commission public art for their ward. These menu funds will be matched up to $10,000 by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE).

An open call process will invite artists, artist teams and arts organizations applying with a lead artist (Artists) to submit their qualifications for the project. DCASE and representatives from Chicago’s cultural community will review the applications and create a pool of pre-qualified Artists for Aldermen to choose from.  The selected Artists will work with DCASE, Aldermen and residents to develop public artworks.  Our goal is to commission a diverse range of projects that celebrate public art in our neighborhoods and in our everyday, civic lives.
