Hashtag-It-Up This #ChiArtistsMonth with #DriveByArt! by Derric Clemmons

Thus far, Chicago Artists Month has been nonstop fun and, well, far be it from us to get in the way of fun! No, instead we want to get everyone in on it.  From now until the end of #ChiArtistsMonth, you can visit any of these 11 Drive By Art locations and use the hashtag: #DriveByArt. Share your comments, crew photos, selfies, fave locations, and creative pic collages and tag @Cocomocha on Facebook; or @Cocomochastudio on Instagram & Twitter.  The first person to tag us on all three pages will WIN FREE DRIVE BY ART!  

 

That's right, you can now own your very own piece of Drive By Art. The first person to tag us on all three social media sites will get to choose from our exclusive selection of installation panels(see sneak previews on our pages). If you tag us before the Meet Up & Walking Tour coming up this Friday, October 16th at the South Chicago Chamber of Commerce you'll receive your artwork in person and snag a photo with the CocoMocha artists team at the event. Then we'll shout you out on all three sites and make your photo with the team our profile photo! It's too much fun to miss out on peeps so...

#DriveByArt at the 20th Annual Chicago Artists Month 2015: by Derric Clemmons

The 20th Annual Chicago Artists Month highlights the work of hundreds of artists throughout Chicago with performances, exhibitions, open studios, tours and neighborhood art walks. October 1 – November 15, 2015, #ChiArtistsMonth (CAM) will invite residents and visitors to meet artists and see their work at venues across Chicago. As the world comes to Chicago to discuss the state of architecture, the CAM 2015 theme The City as Studio looks at Chicago as a place for investigation, experimentation, innovation and production, and encourages a dialogue with the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial opening in October. Meet artists, see their work and make your own at 300+ events across the city. Cocomocha is proud to join the festivities with our #DriveByArt event, installations, and interactive #hashtag-it-up art walks. Click the Events Calendar for details.

#ChiArtistsMonth 2015 is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, in collaboration with the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Public Library. In-Kind support from Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises,®Inc.
