Urban Art in Chicago
Many people know that a common nickname for the city of Chicago is “the windy city.” However, if you’ve never been to the Midwest, you may not know that Chicago has a rich and vibrant art scene — and much of it is happening right out on the streets! This trip was primarily geared to musicians who are interested in learning from and playing blues music with Chicago’s great teachers and performers. In addition, we took part in the slam poetry scene and Improv Theater. We also visited architectural wonders and the collection at the Chicago Art institute. Thanks to our main correspondent, teacher and dorm counselor Liva Jostad-Laswell, for most of the photos and updates.

We enjoyed viewing the city at night from the Willis Tower Skydeck on Tuesday. Aubrey practiced her headstand (against strong glass!).
On Wednesday we enjoyed a delicious gluten-free supper cooked by Aaron and Aubrey.
