VIP PREVIEW TO BENEFIT THE DIA

In response to recent Detroit Institute of Arts reports, Fountain is showing its support for this prestigious institution by donating proceeds from Friday’s VIP preview from noon until 7 pm to the museum. Detroit, 280 miles east of Chicago, and home to a collection of over 60,000 works, is recognized as one of the most important museums in the nation. Fountain is honored to uphold the DIA’s legacy with the city of Chicago during the EXPO CHICAGO weekend.

TUYAU PERFORMANCE ART SERIES

Starting Friday, the fair will stage TUYAU, a performance art series curated by Meredith Weber, which will work as a conduit for the artist’s voice and promises to engage the audience in a multitude of shared experiences while creating a platform for artists to take risks that further realize their conceptual ideas. Performances include local favorites Industry of the Ordinary and Claire Ashley. View the full schedule here.

SPECIAL ART INSTALLATIONS

In collaboration with Packer Schopf Gallery, Fountain Art Fair is showcasing Dave Ford’s Swing Set Drum Kit, an interactive sonic sculpture encouraging people to build rhythmic sounds through their swinging.

Montreal street art collective and long-time Fountain favorites, En Masse, are also on hand creating a site-specific mural.  Working live in collaboration with local artists in their signature black-and-white style, the En Masse installation promises to deliver great photo opportunities all weekend long.
