we are an art activation agency pop up art galleries | murals | installations
Thanks to social media, artists don’t need to rely on representation from galleries with exorbitant commissions. Artists can now build their own audiences and collectors. But there is a depth missing from an instagram grid. We’re bridging that chasm. Allowing artists the opportunity to meet collectors face to face in an accessible atmosphere.
Every show is different with a new lineup of artists, performance art activations; the vibe of each gallery is different, enticing collectors to come back every time.

We partner with artists of every medium.
We were designed for community. We thrive on collaboration. We believe in the power of ‘we’ over ‘me’. We are constantly seeking ways to collaborate on murals, installations and partnerships.

"rostrum 312 gave me the opportunity I’ve always wanted as an artist. When I first moved to Chicago, I didn’t know anyone in the art community, wasn’t sure how I could showcase my art, or even know where in the city events were happening. I stumbled upon a rostrum312 show by accident and was able to meet so many artists and people. There, I was invited to participate in the next show! A dream I’ve always wanted! At this show, I was able to sell art, gain social media followers, and build connections with artists I still communicate with years later. rostrum312 gave me the opportunity of a lifetime, can’t thank them enough."

"I had an amazing experience exhibiting at rostrum312! What a fun night! Beth creates an incredible vibe with talented local artists, live music, performance art and more. The event was well attended and the energy palpable! Thank you so much Beth for the opportunity to exhibit my work, connect with other artists and collectors in a very special and unique venue."
"I had attended three of Rostrum 312’s events before being a featured artist myself, and all four events have been completely packed with people! I love the variety of fine artists who participate, and I enjoy having control over my own curation. I was very impressed with how well the show is marketed on social media, which is directly related to the massive support Rostrum 312 receives by its patrons. In my opinion, Rostrum 312 provides an excellent opportunity for budding artists looking to show their work to a large audience easily, affordably, and without a daunting commitment like a weekend fair or month-long gallery show."
"Rostrum312 was an amazing experience as an artist! It gave me the opportunity to meet more artists in the community and foster relationships with new collectors. One of the most cherished group shows I have done!"
