Echoes of Chicago Resolutions 2014

On 25 January, I was asked to volunteer for a non-profit called Echoes of Chicago. They needed event photographers to help cover a fundraising art show held to kick off the new year.

These are some of my favorite photos from the event. I encourage you to check out the Echoes of Chicago website. Their goal is to strengthen the community through art.

 Custom hats were for sale at the event.

 The canvas on this piece of art was tie-died before the man eating a sandwich was painted on. It was my favorite piece at the show.

 This is Natalie Grace Alford. Originally I snapped some photos with the flash, but decided to forego the flash in favor of the dramatic red stage lighting.

 Echoes set up an art station where many people spent the night creating works of art from bits and pieces.
