Where is Illiterate?

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days, but there is an excuse, and a pretty exciting one at that... Illiterate has a new home! After five years of working out of various coffee shops, and living rooms Illiterate has a physical address all its own. The place is an 1800 sq ft two story building that will be used as the Illiterate HQ, with artist studios and our very own art gallery. The building was what you might call a 'fixer upper', and for the last month, the Illiterate staff, along with a handful of generous volunteers and family members,  have been hard at work renovating to get ready for our big November grand opening. Stay tuned for more news on progress and about our first group art show coming up just around the corner.

Illiterate Gallery - Terry

Sander's parents decided to dawn SARS masks like the rest of us and lend a hand during their "vacation" from Minnesota. His Mom Terri proved both a deligent  scraper and an expert lighting director.

  • Formalisms: Joel Swanson at Redline

    Comment from tbron

    Not only an excellent article but an amazing show as well. Joel Swanson's work is deceiving simple. It is blend of both the right and left brained. Its presentation is as pretty as it is pragmatic. I am sure that 200 people that attended his solo show were equally impressed. ...

I hoped most of the people on Colorado Blvd. were half asleep when they d...
