Magellan Development Group, premier developer of mixed-use properties based in Chicago and MAC Management recently announced in a press release the launching of a one-of-a-kind contest to honor local talent. The program – which is poised to expand into Magellan’s other top urban markets across the country – is designed to enhance residents’ lives with in-house live entertainment and promote the rich arts culture native to each location. The best part? Winning artists will refine their craft while being rewarded a full year of rent-free living.

While artists can range from musicians to chefs, painters, sculptors and more, Chicago’s deep-rooted musical history and eclectic vibe calls for an acoustic guitarist to the serve as the first official Exhibit A-Lister at the Exhibit on Superior residential development.   Located in River North, Exhibit on Superior is a destination for smart, artistically curated living and is the ideal location for the Exhibit A-Lister to unite the resident community with moving performances and demonstrations.

“We have always been a major advocate of the arts so we couldn’t be more thrilled to launch this never-before-seen program,” said David Carlins, President of Magellan Development Group. “Our brand promise is to invest in our communities in impactful ways to enrich the lives of our residents.  We feel strongly that our Artist in Residence program will do exactly that.”

The hunt for the “Exhibit A-Lister,” will be a one-month long contest (February 21 – March 21, 2017) that puts the call out to aspiring acoustic guitarists/vocalists.  Selected finalists will compete during a VIP event hosted this spring at Exhibit on Superior, 165 W. Superior St., Chicago.  The ultimate winner will be expected to entertain and/or instruct at the Exhibit a minimum of 8 to 10 hours per week at no charge to the residents.

So, how do you become the next coveted Artist in Residence? To enter, post a one-minute video demo on your social channels using the hashtag #ExhibitALister and tag Exhibit on Superior. The top five contenders will perform for judges and party guests during the VIP Exhibit A-Lister party and the winner will be announced on-site at the end of the event.

“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,” said Jim Losik, National Marketing Director, Magellan Development Group. “This program will create a destination where residents and friends can come to unwind and be entertained.”

Conveniently located within steps from some of Chicago’s most well-known galleries, restaurants and shopping centers, Exhibit on Superior’s interior design reflects an eccentric surround of furnishings, fixtures and textures that one would find at an up-scale record label or vibrant fashion house. Ideal for musicians and creatives looking to deepen their passion, each of the 298-units are skillfully curated to support a creative’s way of living.  Superior amenities in the studio, convertible, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments include keyless entry, stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer and dryer and more.
