> DESCRIPTION

The Patron Spirits Company is sponsoring, between Nov. 15 and Dec. 31, live, working art studios and galleries where emerging artists will create works that will then be auctioned in support of four art organizations from Chicago, New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

In Chicago, the project is organized around a storefront window in a formerly vacant space (50 E Chicago Ave). For a week, seven artists (Richard Shipps, Jolanta Izabela Pawlak, Cydney M Lewis, Alexandra Lee (ATYL), Mark Moleski, Shawn Stucky & Stephen Flemister) will work in this space to create original paintings, sculptures or other art based on their personal interpretations of Patron tequila’s “Simply Perfect” brand tag.

Visitors can watch the live work in progress at the storefront window during afternoons and evenings, Wednesdays through Sundays. At other times, the art will be on display in the storefront window, along with a video screen showing the progression of the collective work.

To view complete collections from all four cities, passers-by can scan the QR code located on the storefront window. The QR code links them to the auction site (eliminateregifting.com), where they will be able to learn more about the artists and bid on works of art. 

Proceeds from purchased pieces by Chicago artists will benefit the Chicago Artists’ Coalition. The artist whose work receives the highest bid from all four cities will be featured in the 2012 Patron ad.

To view the art in the making in Chicago, visit the "Simply Perfect" Art location at:

50 East Chicago Avenue (between North Wabash Avenue & North Rush Street)
