Chicago-based art center Lillstreet is looking for artists to submit to their annually displayed rooftop installation project. Four to five artists are chosen to display flags on the rooftop of the art center for a month during 2013.

Lillstreet’s textile department annually exhibits a series of juried artist’s flags in an installation space on the rooftop of the Art Center building. The opportunity is open to artists both nationally and internationally.
