In the past few years, the newly refreshed and improved Chicago Artists Coalition has proven its value to the city's arts community. What was once viewed as a somewhat out-of-touch arts group for hobbyists is now, under new leadership, an innovative, multipronged organization dedicated to building a sustainable marketplace for Chicago artists. To further its mission, CAC hosts the inaugural EDITION Chicago, a satellite art fair occurring the last official weekend of summer. Its aim is to cultivate a new audience of collectors in Chicago by offering contemporary art at affordable prices (in other words, pieces you don't have to be Jay Z to buy). Exhibiting galleries include dealers from Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Toronto and Bloomington, Indiana. Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson will produce a limited-edition print available on-site.
