YAB DIY Madness…

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

The sun is out and it’s been quite a summer here in Chicago, the months of May and June have been spectacular here at Galerie F and to top it off, we kicked off the month of July celebrating our 3rd year anniversary here at Galerie F with the You Are Beautiful campaign.  Only days after being named by Chicago Reader as the Best Gallery in Chicago – we geared up to bring one of the largest group shows to date.

You Are Beautiful began in Chicago in 2002 with 100 stickers. Since then, over 2 million stickers have traveled to every corner of the globe. The most exciting idea about the project is that it has always been open source, giving the community the power to be creative in the way they spread this positive message.

YAB DIY showcases over 100 incredibly talented artists from around the world who have added their voice to their own YAB Boards making this exhibition another one for the books.

We also partnered with Project Onward for this exhibition having ten of their artists participate in this exhibition. Project Onward is a nonprofit studio and gallery for professional artists with mental and developmental disabilities. Their mission is to support the professional development of artists with exceptional talents and challenges, ranging from autism to mental illness, and provides these artists with workspace, materials, professional guidance, exhibition opportunities and access to markets to sell their work and advance their careers.

We’re all here to say one simple thing: You are beautiful.

Come and view this grand exhibition while you can, running on display until August 10th, 2015.

 

Hours: Tuesday- Sunday 11-6pm
