APA Chicago is sponsoring Chicago Creative Review on Thursday, September 25 at Morgan Street Studio. It's difficult getting a meeting with an art producer or creative. We've assembled the finest creative talent in Chicago for a one day event and all you have to do is register. After registering - whip your portfolio into shape, work on your presentation skills, and nail the in-person interview. This is your chance to get the critical feedback needed to move your career forward.

Special Note
While we're hoping our artists and reviewers benefit from valuable time spent sharing work and establishing a connection, we're also interested in giving back. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Steve Grubman memorial fund to assist young artists as a donation to the Off The Street Club.

Lisa Kunst, Art Producer, Leo Burnett leads an all-star cast of reviewers.
