The Warehouse Project
DEC 03 - NOV 04

A series of monthly Chicago Artists’ Collective (CHARCOLL) exhibitions designed with the Chicago Arts District to draw more attention to the ongoing Pilsen Second Friday Openings. Each month consisted of a show title, theme and all new work from myself and each of the twenty some rotating exhibitors who comprised the artists’ collective for this project. The originality and quality of the work caught the attention of the RED EYE and RED STREAK precipitating an immediate attendance spike with consistent growth through the year.
