Chicago has always given us plenty to talk about. That is why today we will be discussing lyrics inspired by Chicago. From Frank Sinatra to contemporary artists like Common and Wilco, we will discuss why these and more have been deeply inspired by Chicago. This meetup is being facilitated by Richard Washam.
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.
