Happy Returns Studio —

  1. Happy Returns Studio is led by Cody Norman and Tom Burtonwood, artists and designers based in the Chicago area. Between the two of them they have over 40 years of combined experience solving creative problems and producing high touch outcomes for commissioned public art projects, commercial work and their own studio practices.

2. Adopt an Ott

In Spring 2021 Happy Returns stepped in to facilitate the safe storage of over twenty key works by the late Chicago based artist Sabina Ott. Happy Returns was able to store and then facilitate the adoption of these works by Ott’s friends and colleagues who were able to give these fragile but important works a home. By the end of 2022 all but one of the works had found a home.
