Growing Up CAD 2009 - Art Auction & Fundraiser 8/15/09

On Saturday, August 15th, the Chicago Art Department will hold its 3rd annual “Growing Up CAD” fundraiser. My involvement with CAD is a labor of love. Throughout the past 4 years, CAD has allowed me the opportunity and freedom to explore my voice as an artist while ensuring a consistent dialogue with an ever growing audience and robust artist network. CAD has helped me grow, and in return I've dedicated myself to the growth of CAD.

Your support can help make the following things possible:
  • Maintaining our flagship location at 1837 S. Halsted - which has become a staple and regular stop in Pilsen.
  • The opening of "CAD West" - an expansion to a 2nd location in West Town, dedicated solely to studio space and the making of art. (This will also be the new location for future CAD classes)
  • Expanding our Residency Program – over the next year, we will be more than doubling our artist residency from 8 to 20+.
  • Even more exhibitions - with the opening of CAD West, CAD Pilsen will shift its primary focus to exhibitions, expanding our events calendar beyond the usual '2nd Fridays' thus providing more opportunities for artists to exhibit
  • Upgrades, Upgrades, Upgrades - while our DIY aesthetic has always been a part of our charm, we would love to keep improving the space with things like repairing our walls, new lighting, and amenities.
I'm donating
Control #1 to the art auction. This was the first piece I made for my most recent collection, Control. A special piece for a special night...
