Everything Must Go was on view at Chicago Art Department in the Spring of 2022.

Hundreds of works throughout the space were available for takeaway at a price determined by the visitor. A majority of the proceeds were then redistributed to Getting Grown Collective in support of their Farm, Food, Families program and to Chi-Nations Youth Council in support of their First Nations Garden.
