The Public Collectors Joong Boo Residency Program
July 2017 marked the end of the first full year of Joong Boo Residencies. There were 26 Joong Boo Residents in the first year. Recent residents include Alison Kuo, Andrea Steves (pictured), and Rosanne Altstatt.
I launched the Public Collectors Joong Boo Residency Program in August 2016. 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 Residency Program has been such a great experience and such a successful experiment that I plan to continue hosting them at the same rate of up to two per month.
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. A typical Joong Boo Residency lasts about an hour. Residencies can be expanded to include additional experiences and conversation time. Shopping at Joong Boo Market (at the resident’s expense) after the completion of your Joong Boo Residency is highly encouraged.
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. Note that residencies are intended for individuals and, under normal circumstances, Chicago residents are not eligible for Joong Boo Residencies.
