Event: Chicago Sculpture Exhibit kickoff party..
Date: Friday, July 20, 2012
Venue: Sedgwick Studio, Old Town, Chicago.
1544 N Sedgwick (Sedgwick & North)
Public Event for the meeting the artists, sponsors and friends,
and help celebrate the 2012 sculpture installations.

The erstwhile Lakefront Sculpture Exhibit [LSE] has expanded into the  Chicago Sculpture Exhibit [CSE], in 2012.  CSE is a privately funded, not-for-profit organization. The sponsors and Boardmembers are from the community. It is dedicated to placing large-scale art in everyday places. In 2012, there are 30 large-scale sculptures on display in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Edgewater, Wicker Park  and Bucktown.  The artists are mainly from Chicago. However, for the first time there is inclusion of artists from Texas, Kentucky and South Carolina. This change was a "nod to Chicago Sculpture International and the international Sculpture Center, who will be hosting their biennial conference in Chicago in 2012".  CSI will return to all local show next year.
