Johalla Projects was founded by Anna Cerniglia as a venue for emerging and mid-career artists. Over the last decade it has produced large varieties of exhibitions and projects which have been reviewed by the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, ArtSlant, Hyperallergic, and Art F City.

At both a local and national level, Johalla offers creative consulting to build and strengthen in-house programs and curate art collections, oftentimes introducing innovative artists to a broader audience. In its creative partnerships with institutions like the Chicago Athletic Association, Fashion Outlets of Chicago, Hoxton Hotel, Soho House Chicago, and Tourists, Johalla Projects has executed large-scale art installations, staged murals, curated weeks of event programming, and shaped the atmospheres of locations through art acquisition and design.
