The Borderbend Arts Collective presents “Armitage Arts: Summer Edition,” a Night Out in the Parks event at Mozart Park that includes an interdisciplinary performance with poetry, music and projections, as well as interactive arts-making activities for all ages. The poets include Janina Ciezadlo, Steven Schroeder, Elizabeth Marino, Charlie Newman and Wayne Allen Jones, and the musicians include Adam Zanolini (flute, saxophone, djembe, electric bass), Angel Elmore (piano, clarinet), Dan Godston (cornet, pixiphone) and Lou Ciccotelli (drums).
“Armitage Arts: Summer Edition” is part of an ongoing series that is part of a community-building initiative along W. Armitage Ave; other “Armitage Arts” programs have included the 2014 Armitage Arts Festival, as well as events at the Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center and Rosa’s Lounge.
This program is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks with the support of Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan.
Funding for this program is also being provided by Poets & Writers. Support for Readings & Workshops events in Chicago is provided by an endowment established with generous contributions from the Poets & Writers Board of Directors and others. Additional support comes from the Friends of Poets & Writers.
