The next group exhibit at Chicago Industrial Arts & Design Center will explore and celebrate the initial ideas that provide the spark for fully realized, three-dimensional objects.

The exhibition will be open from May 21 through July 2, 2016. An open call for submissions will remain active throughout the run of the exhibit via ciadc.org/blueprints-submissions 

All submitted images will be printed on 8.5 by 11 inch (215.9 mm x 279.4 mm) letter paper in black and white on a LaserJet printer, and displayed in the gallery space along with selected original drawings, models, and finished projects. 

Submitted images may depict but are not limited to: notes, sketches, maps, mock ups, outlines, plots, vellums, drafts, floor plans, models, shop drawings, technical drawings, snapshots, schematics, negatives, maquettes, mind maps, roughs, graphs, polaroids, renderings, bar napkins, samples, transfers, proofs, grocery lists, et cetera.
