In collaboration with "The Birdhouse Museum" and longtime Project Onward volunteer / Chicago punk rock godfather Mike Pocius, we hosted this year's "Art On Cardboard Show."The event (going on 19 years!) is an ongoing celebration of thrift & imagination. With just a bit of love, your junky old boxes can be transformed into transcendent works of art. From tributes to entertainment icons to immersive scenes of mythical creatures to a faithful Ricky Willis construction of the Bahá'í Temple in Wilmette, IL - this show's got a little bit of everything.

Project Onward believes we can inspire change by using art to promote empathy and reduce the stigma of mental illness and developmental disabilities. We seek to improve the self-image of artists by emphasizing the social and economic value of their work.
You can directly contribute to this belief and help improve the lives of each Project Onward artist by purchasing their work. Our online shop is open 24/7, and half of the sale for each original piece goes directly to the artist.
