On Wednesday, November 18, from 6-8PM at the Jane Addams Hull House Museum, Propeller Fund proudly announces the fifteen grant recipients for 2015. Selected from a pool of over one-hundred candidates, these small, self-organized, and radical projects are vital to Propeller’s mission of promoting diversity and small-scale interventions in Chicago’s visual art world. Join us for this free-to-attend event as we celebrate the grant recipients and the community with food, drink, and music.
In addition to short presentations about each of the 15 awarded projects, with representatives from each project in attendance to accept their award, the event will also feature a short presentation by 2014 Propeller Fund grantee and 2015 Propeller Fund juror Nicole Marroquin about her experiences with the program.
