In Memory of Lois Weisberg
Today the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, artists and friends of Project Onward pause to mark the one year anniversary of the passing of founder Lois Weisberg. In doing so, we reflect on her life and countless gifts to the cultural life of Chicago, and know that she will never be replaced.
Thanks to Lois, Project Onward was created specifically to support talented adult artists with mental and developmental conditions; it has never strayed from that mission. As we remember Lois, we are profoundly grateful for her service to the City, and especially to the past, present and future artists of Project Onward.
