It was great fun working with my fellow artists Tiffany Gholar and Jennifer Cronin. We did it! Or in the the words of Andre Breton, founder of Surrealism: What exalted us in these productions was indeed the conviction that, come what might, they bore the mark of something that could not be begotten by one mind alone and that they were endowed, in a much greater measure, with a power of drift that poetry cannot value too highly

 

Fall 2012

FAB Studios joined Chicago Loop Alliance (CLA) and took part in CLA's first Open Streets on State Street. It was a huge success. Over 10,000 visitors joined FAB Studio members to fill State Street with art and music.
