Images from Atomic Sketch 9/30
On the eve of Chicago Artists Month, we popped by Atomic Sketch.
While art is often accessible in our society, even if you have to pay a few bucks to see it hang in a museum, it hasn't always been associated with the concept of affordability.
For as little as picking up an artist's bar tab or bumming them a smoke, you can be a benefactor to an artist who began and completed a sketch within a predetermined time frame, upon the completion of which it is surveyed by others and given a price tag, beginning in the single digits and not to exceed a $50 cap.
At rates like this, and because the process kept an artist fixated to the cause of creating art, while working in the company of other artists, I'm not sure Atomic Skech can be beat or that any of us can afford to miss it.
Curious? Atomic Sketch is usually held on the last Thursday of the month at evilOlive, 1551 W. Division from 7 to 10PM.
