Newcity’s April 30 issue—”Breakout Artists: Chicago’s Next Generation of Image Makers”—will be our twelfth annual edition devoted to showcasing Chicago’s top emerging artists. This issue of Newcity is well established as the early indicator of the art world’s future superstars.

So who should advertise in this issue? Well anyone connected to the art world, either as an exhibition venue, a teacher of art or as a seller of art, of course. But beyond that, anyone interested in connecting to culture in its most exuberant form, or reaching the consumers of art—often the most demographically desirable of all—whether to offer them a place to eat, to shop, or to have a cocktail.

Newcity Assistant Editor-Design Opening

Newcity seeks an assistant editor to work directly with the editor in building on the foundation of design coverage in Newcity. This is a paid, part-time position, approximately twenty hours a month.

Design, which incorporates architecture and the built environment, and home, fashion, graphic and product design, is a central interest in the lives of our readers. Yet few if any publications give it the attention it deserves, and those that do cover it approach it from a consumerist perspective. We’re more interested in it as an artistic and social practice, with implications for the city and culture at large.

It’s an exciting time to be thinking about design in Chicago, one of the great world centers in its practice.
