Join us on May 24 on the 4th floor Mana Contemporary Chicago as we celebrate the Propeller Fund’s new project space and studio residency with workshops, a lecture, and an exhibition featuring the work of 2012 Propeller grantees.
Propeller’s new residency program offers two free, one-year studio residencies to develop new projects by Propeller Grantees. The studio spaces are adjacent to a 600 square foot space where the Propeller Fund will host workshops, exhibitions, curatorial initiatives, and community events. The 2014/2015 residency awardees are Radius and Multiuso; read more about them here.
