Multiples. is a temporary crossover market opening for one weekend in March and October 2014 showcasing objects produced as multiples. As a premise show, Multiples. seeks to span the division between art and craft, which are intimately connected, yet often artificially separated by preconceived notions of social value. Modeled as a hybrid of the contemporary commercial art fair, critical craft markets and an exploration of visual art forms, Multiples. is an affordable option for contemporary artists and makers looking to expose their practice and sell their editions, replicated hand-made, or manufactured works in Chicago.

CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, pairs a reader’s personal story about a First Time event with a song performance. This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by The First Time Three. The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell what the audience enjoys more each story or each song. The evening is hosted by CHIRP DJ Jenn Sodini. Past readers featured in this quarterly series include Shannon Cason, Joe Meno, Dan Ponce, Brian Babylon, Kelly Hogan, JC Brooks and Ji Suk Yi.
April's theme is First Time: First Move. Scheduled readers are Doug Sohn of Hot Doug's, Jonny Imerman of Imerman's Angels, CHIRP DJ Cher Vincent, Storyteller Dana Norris and Don Hall, The Moth StorySlam Host and House Manager for WBEZ's "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me." Other readers TBD. The First Time series is a benefit for CHIRP Radio.org
