We just returned from an amazing trip to Chicago for the second leg of our Future Forward event series presented by the all-new Prius. During the day, the event at the Revel Space in the trending Fulton Market neighborhood welcomed a mix of art students, families, and even a Great Dane. The artists' panel discussion gave visitors the opportunity to ask the participating studios intimate questions about their professional paths and the materials they use. Then things really got going at night, when the crowd from the venue spilled out into the parking lot. In fact, there was a consistently long line to experience Nonotak's light and sound installation, Hoshi, and throngs of people around all the other installations as well. Prius Piano player Kris Bowers delighted everyone with inventive covers and personal compositions that gave the night a real sense of celebration. Among the dim party lights, the installations from Doris Sung, VT Pro Design, and Nonotak positively radiated.
We'll be rolling out exclusive interviews with the participating artists in the lead up to the next stop of our tour. Join us in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 25.
