In early August 2016 I launched the Public Collectors Joong Boo Residency Program. The residency consists of me buying Korean lunch for the resident at Joong Boo Market on 3333 N. Kimball Avenue in Chicago. I also take a photo and write a little report.
The Joong Boo Residency is open to creative individuals that like Korean food and are interested in sharing lunch with me. There is no cost to be a resident and I will attempt to accommodate up to two residencies a month. A typical Joong Boo Residency lasts less than an hour. Residencies can be expanded to include additional hanging out and conversation time if this is mutually agreeable to myself and the Joong Boo Resident. Shopping at Joong Boo Market (at the resident’s expense) after the completion of your Joong Boo Residency is highly encouraged.
There have been 13 Joong Boo Residents to date. Since the last newsletter about this project in November 2016, I've had the pleasure of hosting: Nathan Pearce, Scott J. Hunter (left photo), Raymond Salvatore Harmon, Sue Uhlig, Andy Sturdevant, Damon Rich, Lisa Anne Auerbach (right photo), and Erick Lyle.
To apply for a Joong Boo Residency, simply contact me, tell me about what you do (links to any websites would be great) and let me know the date and time that you would prefer to have a residency. Note that under normal circumstances, Chicago residents are not eligible for Joong Boo Residencies.
