AnySquared Projects organized, executed, curated, produced and created the 2012 SQUARED! Art+Community art walk.

Squared! was a celebration of what happens when a community defines itself by the people who live and work together, rather than by wards and neighborhood names. Squared! featured 130+ artists in a collection of exhibits, open studios, installations, videos, murals, activities, music + more created by and for our community.

SQUARED! Art+Community

Look for the return of
SQUARED! in the future!
