visit jesse & chad

Life Long Work Week is a project to promote the idea of artist collaboration in a public setting. We plan on taking over retail storefronts, galleries, fairs, and anywhere else people gather.

Experiment #001:
From September 7th through the 13th in Chicago, IL artist/designers Jesse Brown and Chad Kouri will transform the Renegade Handmade storefront into their work space for one week. During this time the two of them will be creating new collaborative work which will be available at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago on September 12th & 13th
Both Artists will be working in the space from 11-7pm each day.
