Last Friday, over 150 graphic design and film enthusiasts gathered in the gallery at The Center for Book and Paper Arts in Chicago to raise production funds for Kartemquin's work-in-progress. Guests enjoyed live blue-grass music, desserts from MJ Catering, wine from Toad Hollow Vineyards and a silent auction featuring nearly 60 works from artists across the country. A seven-minute trailer for the documentary screened, and over $8,000 was raised to support the film. Thanks to all of our supporters and sponsors, including those listed above as well as Steracle Press and Hall's Rental. Read more about it.
