Hyper Allergic

Kate Robertson- Director of Education

This is a great resource for any art lover. Interesting articles, reviews and commentary for visual, performance and literary arts. Always on my weekly check-in list.

Red Bubble

Alison Franco- Gallery Coordinator

Artists upload their images to the site and patrons can purchase stickers, clothing, journals, etc with real original artwork printed on it. Also good for artists as a means of exposure. Artists get a cut when purchases are made.

Urban Sketchers

Rachel DeRocher- Education Coordinator

This artistic, storytelling blog captures the urban views people see in both everyday life and while traveling, sketches that hinge on what is seen from direct observation. Sketches like these remind me of the intimate moments we can have in seemingly mundane or impersonal places.

Magnum Photos

Andrew Cohen- Content Specialist

Magnum Photos is an artists’ cooperative of some of the best photographers in the world, past and present. One of my go-to’s for inspiration and perspective.

Blick Art Aboard

Chelsea O’Hayer- Education Coordinator

When I need some inspo for projects I go to the dickblick project page!

Half Letter Press

Mike Wolf- Exhibitions Coordinator

This is a project by the Chicago based group, Temporary Services. Their work has had a significant influence on the work I’ve done since earning my arts degree. Half Letter Press is a great resource for free and affordable zines that document alternative creative practices.

Behance

Jeremy Wheeler- Marketing Manager

A few years back Behance become *the* portfolio site for creatives to share their work. It helps that it’s run by Adobe so integration into their family of programs is seamless. Most importantly, Behance is frequented by professionals all around the world and thus the odds of getting your work seen by the right people is far greater a normal website. For lovers of art, it’s a rabbit hole of great stuff to feed your eyeballs.
