Chicago Publishers Resource Center (CHIPRC) Set To Close 8-31


You can read the news on the front page of the site, posted August 1, or read the PDF follow-up from Quimby's here: CHIPRCclosure.pdf. Or both. I'd recommend both. The PDF is quite good with detailing remaining events, including the group's finale.

Any collective arts organization strikes me as very difficult to run as they require passionate participation by various segments of the overall community that must take the form of wanting to do the hard work and find the human hours and money necessary to keep things going. Congratulations to CHIPRC on their run helping various artists, including cartoonists. May their passing yield a dozen phoenix-like successors. Shared resources are the future.
