Cook County State’s Attorney to hold Art Exhibit during Victim’s Rights Week


The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office is inviting local art school students and local artists to submit works of art for an exhibit during Victims’ Rights Week, according to the Office of Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez.

Works of art must be original and must embody this year’s Victims’ Right Week theme, “Extending the Vision – Reaching Every Victim.”  A panel of experts and community members will view submissions for appropriateness for public display and interpretation of theme.  Selected submissions will be on display in the lobby of the Richard J. Daley Center in downtown Chicago and also at the State’s Attorney’s four Community Justice Centers during normal business hours during Victims’ Rights Week, which is April 22-28.

A photo of the original art piece, along with a completed application, should be submitted no later than March 26, 2012.  It is preferable that photos and applications be sent via email to or dropped off at one of the four Community Justice Centers.

For the addresses of the State’s Attorney’s Community Justice Centers, an application and more information on the art display, please visit the Cook County State’s Attorney’s website, and click on the Victims’ Rights Week art display logo.
