Chicago Artists Unite!: Winter Group Art Jam at AIC!

Chicago Artists Unite!: Winter Group Art Jam at the Art Institute of Chicago!

So, I kind of put this thing together at the last minute and did not expect it to take off so fast.

I have been meaning to do this for sometime though, but never could find the necessary time to put one together.

This current event was not really exposed or promoted to the public until now, but needless to say, I have decided to make this an annual event in hopes of bringing together the many talented and diverse artists, Chicago has to offer.

This is just my first step of many to come, that I believe will help strengthen our community as a whole, as well as help the rest of the world view us as a city of strong, progressive and talented artists that live here.

City Of Chicago Project

I've been so busy as of late that I've been forgetting to post things..

A newspaper article was recently written up on a completed
project that was created for the city of Chicago that I was able to be
a part of. I was mentioned towards the end of this interview.

The article was written before the real physical duties of the
production was started so some aspects had changed after.

making a living and ones morals while doing so.

interactivity among the working class artist.
