Beauty & Brawn :
Beauty & Brawn is a unique curatorial partnership based in Chicago which specializes in custom art and mural curation, project and event programming, production management, artist management, public art and arts education accessibility initiatives and more. Partners Lindsey Meyers & Simone Garcia are artists, curators, event facilitators, gallerists and activists and owned Beauty & Brawn Art Gallery and Think Space in Logan Square, Chicago for almost six years. Being the first true gallery in the neighborhood, their efforts were focused on supporting local artists and the creative community, arts education, public-facing art, place making and cultivating cultural inclusivity and dialogue. Meyers & Garcia are responsible for some of the most outstanding and iconic murals and art programming in Chicago and beyond for clients including the City of Chicago, Soho House (Chicago/Toronto), Chicago Loop Alliance, International Women's Forum, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Hyatt Centric Chicago, Village of Fox Lake, The Chicago Yacht Club and more. Meyers & Garcia have worked with a myriad of local artists, as well as those from Berlin (Onur), Brazil (Kobra and Fernando Chamarelli), Montreal (Mateo Wallpainter- Mathieu Bories), South Africa (Ricky Lee Gordon), Argentina (Marina Zumi) and Mexico City (Libre).
Beauty & Brawn produce works, conversations and events which offer a socio-psychological perspective and immersive experience to the viewer. Through art and experiential curation and collaboration, we showcase artists and performers whose philosophies examine, encourage and ultimately connect the emotional experience to human existence. Collectively, we see each project through from conceptualization to installation and focus on ventures that are often nonlinear in content, setting and/or scope.
We are committed to supporting creatives working in all artistic disciplines and across all genres, as well as those at various career levels. We are also proud to facilitate public art projects that we feel are innovative and unique- those which perpetuate and contribute to the dialogue about art accessibility and art in both urban and rural landscapes.
With our combined experience of over 25 years in the field, we believe our carefully-crafted curatorial approach lends itself to creating interesting and yet uncomplicated spaces and discussions where expression and energy can seamlessly come together. And our mission combines our passion for all things: art, creativity, arts education, philanthropy, activism, place making and community engagement.
Most importantly, we believe art is for everyone.
