Fun-a-Day Exhibition AND Bookbinding Demo
The Read/Write Library hosts the first annual Fun-A-Day Chicago
exhibition. Fun-A-Day Chicago builds on the Artclash Collective's
annual tradition (8 years strong) of organizing Fun-A-Day shows in
Philadelphia. This year, there will be 21 shows around the US and 2
international shows, all organized by local art collectives who have
adopted the project and started their own shows.
Fun-A-Day is a simple concept that produces beautiful results.
Participants choose a project and produce one piece of artwork every
day for the entire month of January. The 31 resulting pieces create a
narrative outlining each artist's journey through the first

drawings, audio pieces, cooking projects, writing, mixtapes, and more.
