Artist of the Year
Are you an artist?  Do you think that you have what it takes to represent the City of Chicago with your unique vision?  Can you imagine your artwork donning the office walls of some of the largest convention organizations in the U.S.?  Well, have we got the program for you, and one particular artist to inspire your Chicago creativity in this new year!

The Choose Chicago Artist of the Year Program is an annual initiative that exposes conventions clients to talented Chicago-based, Chicago-focused artists.   For the past thirteen years, the senior staff of Choose Chicago and SMG/McCormick Place (on behalf of Choose Chicago, SMG/McCormick Place, the Mayor of Chicago and the entire local hospitality community) have presented artwork to large conventions to show our appreciation for their support of Chicago.  What a better reminder of their time in Chicago than a piece of Chicago itself? 

Now, for this year - insert drumroll please - Us Choose Chicagoans are proud to award Jamie Link the honorable title of Artist of the Year!  (Second year in a row... Can I get a woop woop?!)  Jamie is a photographer who is continually gaining exposure for his inspirational work not only of Chicago cityscapes, but of wildlife, landscapes and products as well! Throughout his reign in 2013 Jamie has wowed and amazed and we look forward to continuing the trend in 2014. 

High five Jamie, lets continue to show off our vibrant city!
