BEST new art programming: 40 North’s The GreatARTdoors
With so many art festivals canceled, C-U artists and art fans were definitely in need of a boost. And 40 North’s new program, The Great ARTdoors, provided that and more. Not only did it offer support to 10 artists, it encouraged them to explore new techniques and materials as they created work to be installed in outdoor locations throughout Champaign-Urbana. But, perhaps even more importantly, it brought art to places where it is rarely found. As examples of site-specific art, these works spoke to and of the communities in which they resided.

The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law.
SPlog posts aren't meant to be read as full articles — most often, they are short, quick bits of information about something that doesn't necessarily warrant a full article, though are worthy of posting.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
