Donating to this fundraiser is a donation for all of our programs and projects.

Our featured project on the horizon is:

the mobile garden

With the blessing of the CTA to move forward, the mobile garden will feature ideas of responsible materials, urban stewardship, and sustainability - highlighted with a one month installation of a native plant garden on a CTA flat car, and interior installations & education in the adjacent train cars.

Our current programs and projects include:

The Learning Moving Image Festival - A festival where moving image makers can screen their work and get valuable feedback from respected members of the community. Screening takes place at the Humboldt Park Art Fair.

The noisivelvet book award - An award created for community college artists competing in their student art shows. The program is currently active at Southwestern Illinois College and Lewis & Clark Community College, with plans to expand to other Illinois community colleges in 2012.

The noisivelvet publishing assistance - A program for new authors seeking support in getting their first work published and printed.

Our mission statement: advocate for the arts, and artists making public work. The organization is active in creating opportunities for artist to create public work. The organization became a recognized 501(C)(3) not for profit in 2009.
