Collective Now Active!
We are called Sixty Inches From Center (SIFC) because we document, archive and support art that exists outside the central iconic art institutions in Chicago. With video, audio, photography, writing, projects, and community engagement, SIFC captures and contributes to the most innovative aspects of our city's peripheral visual culture.

All documentation collected is cataloged on the Sixty Inches From Center Archive and used as an educational and promotional support tool. The Sixty Inches From Center Collective Project focuses on creating new ways to engage the Chicago community with the vanguard visual arts. These efforts combined make Sixty Inches From Center an essential portal to the contemporary art periphery in Chicago and act as a testament to this work's deserved place at the global art table.

From audience-curated programming to micro funding and sponsorships, the look and success of SIFC and our endeavors depends on the support and engagement of the creative community in and around Chicago.
