Our 2018 Annual Benefit: Bad Wedding is just around the corner and we are thrilled to present an art auction line-up like no other, with work by some of the most notable and rising artists of Chicago, including Spudnik Press’s very own members!
Congratulations to Julia Arredondo, Elke Claus, Ben Garbus, David Krzeminski, Lialia Kuchma, Carron Little, Dutes Miller, Yasaman Moussavi, Jill Ruzicka, Emily Shopp, Junli Song, and Tara Zanzig, whose artwork was selected by guest juror and esteemed colleague Oli Watt to be featured in the Member Section of our benefit. Member work selected for the auction on Saturday, October 20th will be professionally framed and photographed for inclusion in our online auction via Paddle8, to be released October 1st.
The Annual Benefit Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year, which raises upwards of $20,000 to be invested in our studio and programs. This year’s event, Bad Wedding, promises to be a light-hearted art party that incorporates campy adaptations of all the best matrimonial traditions. This carefully curated reception-style event will feature craft cocktails, live entertainment and exceptional art.
