About the event

What an exciting couple of years it's been for Project Onward! We have a lot to celebrate.

Since we last saw you, Project Onward welcomed 11 new artists, and held our first-ever residency program in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where many of our artists found inspiration at the John Michael Kohler Museum and Art Preserve. We were invited to exhibit at the Outsider Art Fair in Paris, and exhibited locally in Chicago at the Other Art Fair. In collaboration with GameStop and London gallery MoonLanding, several works from Project Onward artists were digitized, animated and featured in the NFT series, "NFToons". And Project Onward is building three new programs: a Ceramic Arts Studio, a Fiber Arts Studio, and a Digital Media and Animation Studio.

None of this would have been possible without your continued support and the support of City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), Illinois Arts Council, and Excelon.

Please join us at a secret location* in Lincoln Park on Thursday, October 13, for an evening of celebration, art, refreshments and small bites. We look forward to spending the evening with you, and thank you in advance for supporting Project Onward and neurodiverse artists in Chicago. 

Only 100 tickets are available, and must be purchased prior to the event.

Can't make it? You can still join in on the celebration! We're holding an online auction that opens at 6pm on Tuesday, Oct. 11, and winners will be announced Thursday evening. Check it out:
