Chicago is known for its creative community and the artists that occupy it. JustCreators, a group of artists creating conceptual visual stories, partnered with the Annex to showcase emerging artists from Chicago. The event brought together over a thousand Chicagoans. The event was the first in a series created to foster a stronger community of art and culture.
