Our next session continues our series (on the first Monday of the month) about connections between arts and nature in Chicago. Was Mrs. O'Leary's cow framed for starting the Great Chicago Fire of 1871? Why did the Yippies nominate a pig for president in 1968? Has anyone ever eaten squirrel burgoo in Chicago? What if the Chicago River hadn't been reversed, or parts of it hadn't been straightened? What can we do to help monarch butterflies as they're heading through the Chicago area, en route to Canada? Come to our next session at Mozart Park when we explore these questions and write alternate history flash fiction inspired by connections between the arts and nature in Chicago.
Bring your musical instruments, art supplies and notebooks. These workshops are interactive and multidisciplinary. We have supplies and equipment on hand that workshop participants can use -- including pencils, pens, paint, a piano, other musical instruments.
Location: Mozart Park is in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. It's on the north side of Armitage Ave. -- several blocks east of Pulaski Rd., just south of Dickens and Shakespeare Streets. We meet in the multipurpose room to the left of fieldhouse lobby; some workshop sessions may happen outside in the park, weather permitting.
Transportation & parking: Mozart Park can be reached by public transportation (such as the #73 Armitage Ave. bus, and not far from the Logan Square and Western Ave. stations on the CTA's blue line. Mozart Park has a parking lot on Armitage, east of Avers.
