CRG artist Steve Roden will produce a new print (edition of 150) for the Side Street Projects 21st Phantom Ball. Available for pre-purchase on the Side Street Projects website for $175 (sight unseen), the image will be made public on June 1st on the website and the price will double.
Supporters of Side Street Projects are invited to purchase tickets to the event beginning April 1st, at $175 each, and in return, will receive a souvenir print from a well-known contemporary artist. To be clear, the Phantom Ball, well, never happens. In lieu of attending, each patron of the ball receives a signed, limited-edition print created exclusively for the Phantom Ball in an edition of 150. This year, the Phantom Ball will feature a print edition by Los Angeles-based artist Steve Roden. The image remains a secret until June 1st. Once we reveal the image, the “ticket price” doubles to $350. Steve is doing something extra special this year so prints will not ship until the end of June. All proceeds benefit Side Street Projects’ programs in mobile youth education and artist services.
Side Street Projects is an entirely mobile artist-run organization that gives artists of all ages the ability and the means to support their creative endeavors. We teach artists how to roll up their sleeves and do things themselves with education programs that encourage self-reliance and creative problem solving in a contemporary art context. Each year we serve over 10,000 individual (adult) artists and over 2,500 children.
