August 2013 marks the 10th year in our current Ravenswood location, and we couldn’t be happier about choosing to spend the past decade in this cheerful and inspiring neighborhood. To commemorate this anniversary, we’re hosting a weekend of festivities in August. Come celebrate with us!

Presented in collaboration with Intelligentsia Coffee, the reception will include refreshments, including coffee and cocktails, and a whole bean coffee raffle while CHIRP Radio's Kumar McMillian (DJ Bylamplight) spins some tunes. The exhibition runs August 23-September 29.
