The Chicago Design Museum is proud to support Project Osmosis, an education and mentoring initiative that furthers design education for underserved minority youth.
Every year, Project Osmosis hosts a benefit to celebrate the program and raise money and support for the organization’s services and scholarship. The 2014 Project Osmosis Benefit in Partnership with UIC-School of Design will be held on 06 September at the University of Illinois at Chicago Innovation Center.
This year’s event asks the question, “What if?” What if we created partnerships to further the design education for students of color? What if creative communities created a system of support for our talented youth? What if design was used as a universal tool to embrace self-love?
We’re looking forward to the event, as it promises to be both energetic and enlightening. Some of the night’s features include:
- Highlights of the University of Illinois at Chicago’s proposal to host the Barack Obama Presidential Library
- Silent auction featuring rare and exclusive Chicago design items, including John Massey’s Vision, Chicago Cultural Alliance posters, the Navy Pier Pierscape Proposal, and Design for Democracy: Ballot + Election Design
- Exhibition of student work
- Meeting the year’s honorees
- Reception with some of Chicago’s most talented artists and designers
