A new format for Proximity but the same high standards of compelling graphic design and a diverse range of contributions as always.
This issue highlights grassroots planning & placemaking projects with the journal's usual focus on art in Chicago - particularly the kind of projects that aren't always immediately visible to casual observers of the city who get their news from more mainstream sources.
Lots of contributors as always, including writings by or about: Shannon Stratton, Reuben Kincaid, Laura Fox, Rebecca Zorach, Mike Wolf on Rockford Illinois, Bill Mackey, Jonas Ohlsson, Gary Kachadourian, Bert Stabler on Artist Project Administration, Alison Peters Quinn with a 2011 Chicago Art Report Card, Jason Lazarus on the Art Fair Problem, Laura Fox on Creative Neighborhood Funds for Chicago, an interview with Daniel Tucker, Eric May on feeding the people, Ed Marszewski, Margueritte Hoberg on Cultural Enterprise, Jim Duignan on better models to access land, dialogue and the imagination, Lavie Raven, Iker Gil, Michael Pecerino, profiles of projects by Jason Lazarus and Paul Nudd, Caroline Picard, an article on Von Zweck by Michelle Grabner, Michael Workman, a Bangkok report from Logan Bay and Sandy Voratanitkitkul, Sean Starowitz on Kansas City, Rachel Hewitt, and Zach Rockhill. Whew! You got all that?
