Fun-A-Day Opening – February 22nd!

Hi Fun-A-Dayers!

It’s the final days of January, and I hope all of your projects have been fun/challenging/exhausting/inspiring!

We have set a date for the fun-a-day Chicago group show!

It will open February 22nd at the Threadless Store – 3011 N. Broadway St from 7-9pm!

Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll set some drop off dates where you can bring your pieces in to be in the show. Everyone’s work is welcome, regardless of whether or not you managed to finish all 31 pieces.

Anyone who needs to instal their pieces themselves, get in touch and we’ll figure something out!

Stay tuned for fliers and more information about the opening. We’ll need your help in spreading the word!

And if you haven’t answered these questions about your piece, please do!

  • What are you making?
  • Do you want your project in the show?
  • Can we have it up the whole month? (we’ll get peoples projects back to them when the show is over)
  • How much space do you envision your project using once it’s done?
  • Is there anything we should know about displaying your work? (Is it especially heavy? Fragile? Needs a stand or podium? Does it have “adult themes” or imagery that might not be appropriate for all ages?)You can email your info to funadaychicago2013@gmail.com

Love,

The fun-a-day crew

Announcing Fun-A-Day Chicago 2013!

We are organizing a Fun-A-Day show in Chicago and want you to be a part of it!

How?
Pick a project (take a photograph, make the bed, draw a picture, bake a cake, etc), do it every day in January, then show your work the following month in a big group show.

Pick a project big or small. Even if you don’t finish that is part of the process!

In February 2013 there will be an art show to exhibit your Fun-A-Day project! We are excited to announce that this year’s Fun-A-Day art show will be at the Threadless Retail Shop (3011 N. Broadway)!

Some information on Fun-A-Day:
“The Artclash Collective is a Philadelphia-based group of artists who organize art projects and shows that aim to be fun, inclusive and participatory. With each project/show, we seek to create a welcoming forum for people to share their art and form a community. Our shows are always free, non-juried and all ages. We hope they help people embrace their creativity and serve as an inspiration for those who attend. We hope we can inspire you to make art!”
