$148,000 general fund
$192,000 building fund
$2,300,000 air-rights fund
250 full-dues-paying members
What will we do with the air-rights windfall ?
There is talk of buying back the air rights over the coach house so we can add another floor.
This might create a studio for special workshops - so our regular workshops would no longer have to be cancelled to accommodate them.
My hope is that we begin to fund invitational exhibitions of non-member art - to display the best portraits, landscape, and still life from the Chicago area and beyond.
Currently no such venue exists.
