EXCHANGE.

 

In 2013, the Founders of Side Street Studio Arts in Elgin, IL stumbled upon 11th Monk3y Industries in Phoenix, AZ while on vacation.  After a great conversation with Owner/Operator Ruben Gonzales, the two growing organizations decided to collaborate on an art swap, aimed at bringing the work of their own area's artists to the growing arts community of the other.  

 

From a great number of submissions, a select group of visual and performing artists have been chosen to represent the two locations and travel from their home state to the other and back again.  Shipping, display, and exhibition of visual work will be paid for and handled by 11th Monk3y and Side Street.  Travel and lodging assistance will be provided for selected performing artists.

 

This exciting collaboration will allow artists' work to travel and reach audiences in two exciting and up-and-coming arts markets, create money-making opportunities for artists, create networking opportunities among artists, and work to bridge the distance among working artists in the United States.

 

Both organizations know this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship and hope just the start of future Exchange projects around the country.
