"You're a Piece of Work" Open Gallery Invites Local Artists, Photographers and Designers to Showoff Their Best Work

February 19, 2015

CHICAGO, Ill. (February 19, 2015) – What piece of art best represents you? That’s what Harrington College of Design is asking local artists, photographers and designers who would be interested in showcasing some of their favorite work in “You’re A Piece of Work” open gallery show on Friday, April 10th from 6:00 p.m. -9:00 p.m. at The Fulton Street Collective (2000 W Fulton) in Chicago.

Now, in its third year, the event welcomes both aspiring and established creatives to come together and celebrate the collaboration of various visual disciplines over cocktails, appetizers and live music. In addition, all participants are invited to donate displayed work to the evening’s silent auction to benefit Marwen, an organization that provides free visual arts classes to under-served Chicago youth in grades 6-12.

“YAPOW is the chance for individuals from all over the area to come together to network and celebrate what it means to be creative, all while supporting Marwen,” explains Brad Kisner, Dean of Instruction at Harrington College of Design.

“You’re A Piece of Work” is free and open to the public with one requirement: each displayed piece must fit into a 17x17” horizontal or vertical space and be able to hang by nail or push pin (provided by Harrington). Space will be awarded on a ‘first come, first hang’ basis and each participant should bring five business cards for name display in the gallery and other networking opportunities.

RSVP by April 8th at yapow2015.eventbrite.com or facebook.com/HarringtonCollege/events.
