Danish artist Gitte Bog seeks input to complete 'Sweet Home West Chicago' project
By SUBURBAN LIFE MEDIA
The West Chicago City Museum welcomes Danish artist Gitte Bog on her return visit to town as the summer visiting artist. She will be in West Chicago through Sunday, July 14, completing her project “Sweet Home West Chicago.”
Organizers say the public is invited to take part in a "sweet exchange of ideas and thoughts" by submitting a short, anonymous survey of their thoughts about West Chicago.
The survey can by accessed either online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/STV7ZX2, at the City Museum, 132 Main St., or during the Railroad Days festival at Reed-Keppler Park, 129 W. National St., from now to July 14. Bog will be present at the event.
Participants and museum visitors will receive a piece of candy with a survey answer wrapped inside. The project can be followed on her website at www.gb09.com.
Bog’s project is part of the City Museum’s current display "Chicago: The History of America’s Candy Capital," an exhibit from the Elmhurst Historical Museum. It remains on display through Aug. 24.
The City Museum is open from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, and admission is always free. For additional information, contact the museum at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-231-3376.
