Something we’re excited to announce:
New this year, Pitchfork Music Festival will feature two large-scale art installations from Chicago-based Johalla Projects. Pitchfork enlisted Johalla Projects’s Director Anna Cerniglia to produce the two installations from local-Chicago artists Matthew Hoffman and Andrea Jablonski. Hoffman will create a large sculpture next to the Blue Stage, spelling out “THESE MOMENTS” in eight foot tall wooden letters, elevated twelve feet high and 80 feet wide. Jablonski will transform the VIP Area by covering trees with hundreds of balloons of various shapes, sizes and colors, including glow-in-the-dark and LED balloons, morphing the trees into sculptures and canopies.
For more information, images or interview opportunities, contact Jaclyn Mellini, Johalla Projects Press Manager, at email@example.com or 847.209.7426.

Johalla Projects is formally hosting an emerging art area at the Lakeview Arts Festival. Johalla Projects is a group of artists and curators that manage an independent project space. The collective, which was established in the fall of 2009 by Anna Cerniglia, is a venue for emerging and mid-career artists.
In conjunction with the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce, Johalla Projects aims to attract new business, provide entertainment, and bring the art community and its supporters to this corridor of Lakeview. Johalla will collaborate with artists, each of whom will create an installation-based exhibit consisting of crafts, posters, toy art and more.The Johalla Projects section of the Lakeview Arts Festival will emulate a car sales lot with creative signage and flags. The section will include organizations and artists such as Chicago Zine Fest, Rebecca Rar Rar Press, Steff Bomb, Matthew Hoffman, Brooks Golden, Adie Janci, Reckless Records, Graham Cracker Comics and a Poster Alley featuring Ryan Duggan, Johnny Sampson, Rick Leech and Josh Davis.
Some displays to look forward to: at the entrance to the designated Johalla Projects space, there will be two large, silver deer sculptures by Andrea Jablonski, taken from our Urban Dwellers public installation. Also, artist Steff Bomb will make a large, fabric drum set on which children can play, and Chicago Zine Fest will set up a workshop table. There will be workshops explaining book-binding zines and one-page zines. Zines are an effective, though unconventional, way to show one’s art without publications. It has successfully provided a national platform for many artists. Additionally, Rick Leech will be demonstrating printmaking. We will also be serenaded by music from DJ British Knights! These are just a few of the displays that will be featured in the Johalla Projects area of the Lakeview Arts Festival.

“The shape of things to come. Nature adapts to the ever-changing neon lit/concrete jungle of the modern world.”
Johalla Projects is proud to announce Urban Dwellers by Andrea Jablonski, in collaboration with Vicki Fuller of VLF Development. Urban Dwellers, large, silver-glittered deer installations, have been placed in an empty lot off of a highly visible and congested street. These structures are meant to serve as a reminder of nature and what may have existed previously, before urban development. Ms. Fuller approached Johalla Projects for this partnership with the goal of enriching the vacant lots near her business, which focuses on urban planning and development. Urban Dwellers debuts the week of June 6, 2011. Johalla Projects is excited to continue collaborating with Ms. Fuller. Please, keep your eyes open for future projects.
