Real Event: Art on the Water

Posted on June 26, 2018

The art sale and cocktail party hosted by local Chicago Queen, Sofanda Booze and produced by VIIVX Group, was attended by over 60 guests. A gallery was displayed featuring local LGBTQ artists from SoFo's "Featured Artist Program", which "showcases the work of local artists for exhibitions lasting two months" at the Andersonville bar. In total, each of the four artists made a sale, totaling just over $1000 raised for Friends of Audubon.
