You're invited to come to our next meetup, when we focus on Dada and Surrealism, with connections to Chicago. Dada, an art movement that started in Europe more than a century ago, has influenced artists around the world including those connected to Chicago. Methods and approaches associated with Dada -- such as arresting and provocative uses of collage, edgy graphics, rebellious and prankster attitudes toward audiences, and skepticism toward industry and politics -- have repercussions that can be felt today. Surrealism, founded in Paris nearly a hundred years ago, has been a liberating and catalyzing force for artists working in a range of art media in Chicago and beyond.
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.
