Passionate. Lively. Inspired. Energetic. Creative.

Just a few words to describe what it takes to become the next Exhibit A-Lister. We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Exhibit A-Lister contest—the search for one acoustic guitarist to help infuse the bespoke soul of Exhibit on Superior with music. 
If you are itching to live out your passions and take your craft to the next level, enter Exhibit on Superior’s premier Exhibit A-Lister contest. Intricately curated and artistically designed, every nook at Exhibit on Superior presents the perfect stage. It is the ideal backdrop to host this one-of-a-kind contest to select our own in-house “Exhibit A-Lister” musician.
The winner will bolster Chicago’s already thriving art scene and fill our communal spaces with the atmosphere and personality the resident community craves.
The best part? The Exhibit-A-Lister will receive one full year of free rent!
We want to set our heartbeat to your rhythm; Your stage is waiting.
