22-Feb-17 – A lucky acoustic guitarist will live rent-free for one year at a new apartment tower in River North, in exchange for entertaining and instructing the building’s residents.

Exhibit on Superior, residents of which started moving in on January 15, has announced a month-long competition to find an artist in residence who can spare 8-10 hours per week.

Jim Losik “River North is already a culturally rich neighborhood and hosting frequent performances with an in-house musician will position Exhibit on Superior as more than just an apartment complex,” says Jim Losik (left), National Marketing Director for Magellan Development Group, the building’s developer. “This program will create a destination where residents and friends can come to unwind and be entertained.”

To enter, artists should post a one-minute video demo on their social channels using hashtag #ExhibitALister and tagging @ExhibitonSuperior. Magellan will select five finalists to compete at an event at Exhibit on Superior in March. After the first year, the program will continue with other artists such as painters, sculptors, and chefs.

Exhibit on Superior is built on the former location of a Howard Johnson Inn. An amenity space on the fifth floor is named “Howie’s.”
