CAC Perspectives: Chuck Thurow on the Death of Artists

The Chicago Artists’ Coalition is pleased to introduce its first contribution to ArtStyle Blog with an article from Chuck Thurow, Executive Director of the Hyde Park Art Center. The Chicago Artists' News, the CAC's monthly paper, has a new feature called “Perspectives,” in which established artists, critics, and other art-world figures pinpoint and analyze art-related practices and developments that have caught their attention, with the aim of eliciting discussion about those phenomena.

In this article, which appeared as a “Perspectives” column in the November issue of Chicago Artists’ News, Chuck raises the question of how to facilitate arts patronage in Chicago so that artists can flourish.

We want to hear from you with your thoughts about the state of arts patronage in Chicago. How can artist-patron relationships be established and maintained? How might the arts patronage community be democratized? And what role should critical art writing — in newspapers, journals, or blogs — play in all of this? As with all future contributions, we would look forward to your responses to the issues raised in this column, so please don’t hesitate to join in the conversation.
