On May 14th, we participated in a career day at Marwen. If you aren’t familiar with Marwen, it’s an incredible organization. Marwen provides the highest quality art education—free of charge—to Chicago’s under-served youth. As a collaborative that knows how important it is to support the creative community, we think Marwen is just amazing.

Each year, Marwen invites creative professionals to meet their students, families, & alumni to help young people envision the many possibilities to have a creative career. We were stoked to be part! Below are a few highlights from the day. We were really impressed with some of the student work we saw and the caliber of professional that showed up, including Kelly Kaminski and Scott Reinhard of Grip Design, Spudnik Press and Stacey of Steracle Press.
