What a cool experience! Awesome work Project Onward!

Big thanks to Google and Google Chicago HQ for hosting us for a happy hour event last week for their Accessibility Week! We had a great time doing live portraits for their employees in the cafeteria and spreading the word of our mission. We also installed artwork on three floors of their beautiful Chicago offices.
