Tracy Kostenbader landed in Chicago in 1986. A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1990, she is an artist who also has been an activist, a book conservator, a worker-bee, small time publisher, designer, a bike messenger, occasional thinker and so many other things. But, the things that compel her are making art, organizing events, working with people, and supporting the issues she cares about. She's made Logan Square her home for nearly 20 years and is actively involved in creating venue and space for area artists. Work, home, community, and politics inspire her to make images, both electronic and through prints, drawings and paintings. Her interest in a more humane world has played a part in what she chooses to make work about. Elevating the ordinary with an occasional bit of humor, her work is also often a celebration of the everyday. She’s spent a couple decades dedicated to supporting social justice campaigns through utilizing her visual and technical skills to contribute solid assistance to a variety projects. Tracy also has helped launch and promote different artists organizations and events and, for the last 2 years, she has been one of the key organizers of art galleries at the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival. She is an active AnySquared member and loves to collaborate with other artists.

All paintings in Old Stuff are from the 1990s.
