Art.Downtown. was bigger and better then ever. Each and every year i cannot belive how amazing it is that this event continues to just get….better.
Dwelling Place interns Annie DeYoung and Krzysztof Lower along with dedicated volunteers Jess Hacker, Alaina Clarke and Willow Smith engaged 75 volunteers and 400 artists, curators and documenters.
The Stats: this year we increased participation by 10 new spaces for a total of 42 participating locations, included a two month 6 part conversation series to engage participants in Artist as Entrepreneurs classes hosted at the UICA and 106 S. Division, doubled media coverage and launched new branding/marketing for the event including building an entirely new event website. Through sponsorship from the DDA and Kendall College of Art and Design Art. Downtown. came in under budget.
