Our next meetup focuses on concert poster designs and other innovative design work by artists whose work has a distinct Chicago feel -- such as those by Dan Grzeca, Jay Ryan and Steve Krakow aka Plastic Crimewave. We also delve into graphic design images that visually represent aspects of Chicago's identity, and we'll talk about connections between amazing concert poster designs and the musicians, bands and concerts they are intended to promote. How can a striking poster image promote a concert while also stand alone as a beautiful art work? We'll talk about this too.
Also art supplies will be provided, so participants can play around with some design elements that could conceivably be worked into concert posters.
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.
