About The Event
Project Onward has been a place for Chicagoland artists to advance their careers since its founding in 2004 as a Gallery 37 initiative. Origins, hosted by Project Onward's Junior Board, features and celebrates the organization's founding artists and how their talent and passion inspired Project Onward to become a fully independent nonprofit organization.
Join us as we celebrate Project Onward's Origins, and take over an intimate gallery space in Lincoln Park for our auction and fundraiser. The evening will feature new work from Project Onward pioneers, including: John Behnke, Ruby Bradford, Jacqueline Cousins, Louis DeMarco, David Hence, David A. Holt, Blake Lenoir, Molly McGrath, Michael Smith, Shiela Smith, Fernando Ramirez, and George Zuniga.
Cocktails + hors d'oeuvres will be served throughout the evening. Space is limited, so be sure to get your tickets today!
