The Ladydrawers are extremely honored to be recipients of a 2014 Propeller Fund Award, an innovative re-granting program established by the good folks at Threewalls in conjunction with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The annual grant goes to collaboratives that operate partially out of Chicago, and is intended to aid the continuation of work that falls through the cracks of other funding guidelines. We’re just thrilled to be able to be listed alongside contemporaries at The Chicago Torture Justice Memorial, the Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation, Monsters & Dust, Lucky Pierre, CAKE, the Prison-Neighborhood Arts Project, and the many many individuals we love here in Chicago doing amazing, thoughtful, engaged work connecting social justice issues to creative activities.
Thursday please come celebrate with us at Mana Contemporary, 2233 S. Throop Street.
And don’t stop celebrating on Friday, when we’re excited to announce that Delia Jean’s work with Anne Elizabeth Moore on VOLKSMODE 2014 has won Best in Show in the Lincoln Square Art Walk. We’ll be at the exhibition at DANK Haus from 6 to 9 pm, partying like we win awards like this every day. Which, technically, for these two days in a row, we do :)
