After thoroughly dominating the digital communications world, it was only a matter of time before the iPhone started staking out new ground, now making its move into the art world.
The free exhibit kicks off Friday at The Chicago Art Department (1837 S. Halsted) from 6-10 p.m.
The completed projects from the 10 artists make up the exhibit, along with works from artists from places such as Russia, Norway and Germany.
Guests can meet with the artists and discuss such lofty ideas as where iPhone art is heading and how it fits into the contemporary art landscape.
Either way, it'll be one social setting where it won't be considered rude to chat on your cell phone in public.
