Three local artists are finalists in a national contest judged, in part, by David Lee Cscsko, a Chicago artist and designer whose work is part of the new Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago and the El's Belmont station.
Kara Johnson of Chicago, Ben Salus of Homewood and Jessica Williams of DeKalb are three of the final five competing in the Tully's Gathering Grounds Art Contest. The winner, which is determined by public voting through Facebook, will receive $1,000 cash and a trip to Tully's Coffee's Vermont hometown to create art through a town community revitalization project. The winner will also get $2,000 in building materials to work on the project.
One vote is allowed per day through May 24. You can view the five finalists and vote here.
