"Join us during our next meetup, when we're presenting and facilitating an open discussion about The Hairy Who & The Chicago Imagists! Join us for a vibrant conversation covering amazing artists such as Jim Nutt, Suellen Rocca, Ed Paschke, Gladys Nilsson, Karl Wirsum, Christina Ramberg, Roger Brown, Sarah Canright, Art Green, James Falconer, Philip Hanson and Ed Flood.
We’ll get into 60s and 70s culture and local influencers as well – Chicago Blues, neighborhoods, comic books, and post-war culture. We’ll be discussing Howlin’ Wolf, Maxwell Street, politics and diversity. It’s going to get wild, weird, and very 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. Our workshop series happens in the room to the left of fieldhouse lobby; some workshop sessions may happen outside in the park, weather permitting.
