Chicago's "Blue Man Group" production has announced an art competition for professional and emerging artists.
The art should be "inspired by the exuberant and joyful essence of Blue Man Group without featuring a Blue Man."
Six winners will be chosen and 10-foot-by-10-foot reproductions of their artwork will be created for a semi-permanent outdoor art gallery on the south exterior wall of the Briar Street Theatre, 3133 N. Halsted, where the production is staged. The original pieces will be displayed inside the lobby.
The gallery will open in September as part of Chicago's Expo Art Week, which will be held Sept. 19-22 at Navy Pier.
"The celebration of creativity and connectedness has always been a priority for Blue Man Group as well as making art and artists accessible to all," said Resident General Manager Mary Grisolano in a prepared statement. "This gallery is a way to continue that mission while offering a big 'Thank You' to Chicago and the neighborhood that has been our home for 15 years."
