Earlier this year, 47 artists were on display in the The Cell Phone Project exhibit at Cherrylion Studios in Atlanta. The exhibit featured photography taken with iPhones and other cell phones. Here’s an opportunity to take part in a similar exhibit in Chicago.

The program is called iPHONE ART! and is the work of The Chicago Art Department. It’s a 5-part weekly program exploring the iPhone as a tool which creates art. The program runs from November 19, 2009 through January 8, 2010 and is free if you complete the program. Of course, iPhone photography is covered. The program culminates with a student-curated gallery exhibition on January 8, 2010 at CAD East Gallery in Chicago.

Chicago-area iPhoneographers and iPhone artists are encouraged to sign up for the program. Not in Chicago? You can still submit works for review. In addition to local artists, the exhibit will feature work from artists from around the globe.
