VOL 28

September 22, 2016
@ Gosiger

Gosiger is going to put up a tent and invite us to party at their place! (McDonough + Bacon) We can't believe our luck! Not only do we have a venue that's exciting the heck out of us, we have a tantalizing assemblage of presenters lined up. Now, this list is still tentative, but it's looking really great. And--oh yeah--our emcee will be Jason Antonick.

  • Aili Bresnahan - Dance: what and why
    Brynn Delange - Bearded dragons
    Crystal Lake - Artisanal products inspired by literature
    Arch Grieve - Sarajevo, Bosnia
    Joel Pruce - a Ferguson, Missouri, project
    Yvette Kelly-Fields - Blame it on the Funk
    Juanita Darden-Jones - the arrival of Downtown Brown
    Todd Muskopf - Boudoir photography and survivorship
  • Randi Levinson - sexuality

Plus, we're hoping to snoop some history on the folks at Gosiger, a century-old, family-owned machine tool, engineering and automation joint. They are kind of awesome.

Huge thanks as always to our sponsors, Catapult Creative, Michael Kalter LLC and Dragonfly Editorial. We wouldn't be able to serve beer without them.
