A portion of the sale of all artwork goes to help support continuing cultural programming at the Center on Halsted. Priced to appeal to both beginning collectors, and the savvy seasoned art collector, Jason Messinger's artwork has been reduced from the artist's internationally listed prices on his web site, to encourage support for the Center.
