As part of the Boneyard Arts Festival, CUDO is hosting a collaborative showcase of letterforms, words, and phrases crafted by artists, designers, and anyone with a love for typography.
Friday, April 8, 2016
5:00pm – 9:00pm
9 E. University Ave, Champaign
The 2016 abCU SubmissionsGuidelines (PDF) can be viewed online. There are no constraints on size of artwork submissions (that’s right, you can make that life-size letter you’ve been dreaming of!). Artwork is due April 1st, and can be dropped off at Pixo during normal business hours.Sign Up for abCU:An Exhibition of Typographic Forms 2016
Entries are handcrafted by local artists and designers in a variety of mediums, with emphasis on handmade processes. Past mediums have included screen printing, hand drawn illustration, letterpress prints, collage, sculpture, painting, and more!
abCU was created with the sentiment that artwork should be affordable and attainable. All artwork will be for sale at affordable prices during our opening reception on April 8th, 2016. 50% of proceeds from sale of artwork will go towards 40 North’s upcoming after-school art program and the other 50% will go towards sustaining CUDO, and help us support an active, engaged, and vibrant designer community in Champaign-Urbana.
