Chi-Town 12×12″ Holiday Showcase
Bucktown Gallery is pleased to present, Chi-Town 12×12” Holiday Showcase. All artwork featured will be 12×12”, created by local Chicago contemporary artists. This show will feature the original small works of up to 30 artists, as well as prints, and other small items. First time to seasoned collectors, this show offers something for everyone. Juried prizes include a 2018 solo show, as well as a fine art print package. Winners will be announced the night of the event. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Embarc Chicago.
Through collaboration and direct experience, Embarc empowers underserved Chicago youth, shirking the achievement gap, as well as the physical gap between them and the people they want to know better. We honored and excited to collaborate with Embarc though this unique cultural experience.
Embarc is a three year elective class that provides experience-based learning opportunities to low-income high school students to prepare them for college and career success. Embarc’s goal is to drive student success with long-term social and cultural exposure. By engaging school districts, community partners and students, Embarc triggers intrinsic motivation in students, transforms how schools educate, and creates a more aware and integrated society. Embarc’s theory of change is simple: you can only become what you can see. Embarc collaborates with more than 250 community partners to provide experiencing learning opportunities outside of the classroom modeled after our core values: curiosity, leadership, collaboration, courage, drive, and change.
