2013 Community Art Project

Thank you to our professional artists, visiting artists, and parent helpers who made our 2013 Community Art Project a success!!!

During May each classroom worked with a visiting artist on an art project. We have a few pictures of the sessions here:

Visiting Artists Week – Ms Galvin’s Kindergarten with Jen Petersen

Visiting Artists Week – Fifth Grades at Ignite Glass

Visiting Artists Week – Seventh and Eigth Grades with Wesley Kimler


We received several donations from professional artists. You can find an interview that Brooke Millar did with Cynthia Prokop, one of our local artists here:

Why do artists love Wicker Park? Local artist Cynthia Prokop gave us her perspective


Pieces from the 2013 community art project were displayed at Wicker Park Bucktown retailers from April 23 until our Time Machine Party on May 10. Here  are some pictures of the pieces:


All of the artwork was then assembled in a one night gallery show at Ignite Glass Studios for our Time Machine Auction Party. We have a few pictures of the event here:
