A Year in Review

The beginning of 2019 is a great time to reflect on everything we’ve accomplished since Third Estate Art began last February. We want to thank everyone who’s donated, volunteered, or ever sent a good thought our way for all the love and support. We can’t wait to see what our next year brings!

And without further ado, here’s our year-end list of everything we did in 2018:

1. We completed two large-scale outdoor installations (The Birds Project) spanning the entirety of Rogers Park to remember victims of gun violence.

2. We hosted free bird making workshops to help neighbors heal from gun violence and participate in the Birds Project.

3. We launched an installation at The Glenwood to call attention to the places and things we're losing to climate change.

4. We hosted a Pride-themed craft at the Artists of the Wall festival.

5. We painted faces at a "Night Out in the Parks" screening of Black Panther.

6. We built a haunted house with the Pottawattomie Park Advisory Council for neighborhood kids.

7. We painted masks with kids at Pottawattomie Park's Trunk or Treat.

8. We provided childcare and crafts at an early voting event to help more people get to the polls.

We also worked very hard behind the scenes to write bylaws and articles of incorporation, file for NFP status, file for 501(c)3 status, and build relationships with other neighborhood groups to make our work possible.

Currently, we're working with the Rogers Park Stitchers to provide handmade winter gear for folx out in the cold this winter. On February 23, we’ll host our very first salon-style event with the theme "Access to Care" at the Factory Theater Substation. We also have big plans to host mosaic making workshops and make artistic improvements to the Pottawattomie Park field house.

Stay tuned to see progress on our latest projects! Email thirdestateart@gmail.com if you’d like more information about upcoming volunteer opportunities or just to say hello.
