OUTreach: Bob Faust

October 16, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Join us for Mentoring Artist-in-Residence colloquium series featuring leading artists presenting their studio practice, work process and notable works. Mature content. This event is free and open to the public. ADA accessible.


By drawing upon the language and tools of the design world and capitalizing on his expertise as a typographer as well as his 30+ year career as principal and creative director for Faust, a cultural branding studio, Bob Faust makes special projects born in the space between art and design. He believes these are  the two most powerful tools for social change and adeptly employs both to “make work that works hard.” As a conceptual artist, his practice is difficult to categorize as it crosses genres, mediums  scales and purposes, to ensure the project’s role is the primary driver of all creative decisions. Faust is also the professional and personal partner of artist Nick Cave. Together, the two recently opened a dynamic, multi-use, not-for-profit, creative space in Chicago called Facility. As an entity, it believes that art and design can create peace, build power, and change the world … that by fostering an environment and community built from your dreams you will wake up daily within your destiny. 

Faust has been recognized nationally and internationally for his inimitable creativity through many prestigious honors including: University of Illinois, College of Fine & Applied Arts, 2022 Distinguished Legacy Award; and City of Chicago, 2022 Mayor’s Medal of Honor.
