Protection // Inspiration Corporation | One Inspired Evening

(artwork by Jake Watling)

I recently made a painting for a charity event that takes place tomorrow night here in Chicago.  The organization is amazing -- they are called Inspiration Corporation, and they help to empower homeless people by providing meals and housing, and offering job training and support services.  They assist over 3,000 people a year.  You can find out more about them here.

Tomorrow night (Friday March 2) is their 20th annual fundraiser event, One Inspired Evening, which takes place from 6-10 pm at 1340 W Washington Blvd.  All artwork at the event will be available for silent auction.  Here is the piece I made!

I'm so deeply happy to be involved with this organization and event.  If you'd like to come tomorrow to support them, tickets are available in advance by calling 773.878.0981 x221,  or by emailing Evan Cauble-Johnson .  They can also be purchased at the door.  Hope to see you there!
