What’s Your Art
Celebrating the Art Centers of Chicago
Hosted by WBEZ as part of their Off Air Event Series
Chicago Cultural Center
Saturday December 3, 2011
From Hyde Park to Pilsen to Ravenswood, there are amazing places of art exhibition, classes and public events fostering the development of art and culture located throughout Chicago. Each unique location has its own style, feel, and expertise. These places champion the city’s commitment for local residents to learn and create original art, and are as Chicago as the World’s Fair and Vienna Beef Hot Dogs.
Alongside these neighborhood spaces, Chicago hosts the nation’s first free municipal cultural center, which first opened its doors in 1893. The Chicago Cultural Center is one of the city’s most popular attractions, featuring more than 1,000 programs and exhibitions covering a wide range of the performing, visual and literary arts.
In celebration of Chicago’s rich landscape devoted to emerging artists, art education, and the opportunity to inspire and become inspired, WBEZ invites you to the Chicago Cultural Center to join us in exploring these spaces and the role they play in shaping the artist in each of us. Each Center will demonstrate the creative activities that enrich their community. “What’s Your Art” is free to the public and is an opportunity for Chicago residents to experience art as a part of daily life. Visit each Center’s page to find out more about classes and events that will be held in the months before the “What’s Your Art” event.
