The Free Art Machine by Chicago the Beautiful

A group called “Chicago the Beautiful” is producing thousands of of free art to distribute for the public. The name of the project is called “The Free Art Machine.” There are plenty of ways to participate.

1) Be a part of their kickstarter

They reached their $8,000 goal with $22,074 pledged via kickstarter. But you can feel free to donate to their campaign and get some art mailed to you.

2) Submit photos to be in the project

Or you can upload your own photos to be part of the project. When there is a public art experiment in Chicago, I very much want to participate, so I submitted nine of my recent photos to be in The Free Art Machine.

3) Attend one of their events

Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 6:00pm is the Kickstarter Completion Party. More info at:

4) Follow online

Here are the nine photos I submitted:

Having a swing with the snow You are meant for amazing things The plants on Michigan Avenue are monstrous Sometimes I wonder if tiny clouds feel lost I love it when the farmers market gives you the basket Encaptured by paintings all inside. Encountered by this scene first outside. We should also pet and touch police cars Sailboats sailing down the Chicago River by the Wrigley Building, just after passing the open Michigan Avenue bridge (kaleidoscope) What is your treasure? (on Wabash Ave light pole)
