Propeller Fund presents a series of discussions, performances, presentations, and more in multiple neighborhoods across Chicago. Now in it’s eighth year, Propeller Fund is a Chicago-area granting organization that supports artist-led, collaborative, public-oriented projects that are independent and self-organized. From Humboldt Park to Austin, from the Northside to Bronzeville, and from public spaces to online, these artist-led interventions, workshop series, collectively organized exhibition spaces, websites, and media projects constitute a large catalyst for the creative activity and vitality of the Chicago art world.
Propeller Fund was imagined to provide funds directly to visual artists and collaboratives in order to stimulate the growth of independent cultural production throughout Chicago; to encourage more varied models of art production and presentation; to spread artistic activities into more diverse areas; to promote the public’s interaction with and public recognition of such activities of our city; and to spark ambitions beyond current formats. To date Propeller has awarded a total $350,000 to 103 projects. Propeller Fund is administered by Gallery 400 at UIC and Threewalls and supported through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting Program.
