Urban Art in Chicago

High Mowing

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.

 

A Day of Art, Blues and Poetry

Friday we toured the Art Institute and learned about Mark Rothko from our docent.

The afternoon was spent engaged with a little musical improv in a blues workshop with musician Fruteland Jackson at Buddy Guy's "Legends".

We finished the day at a spoken word poetry event. Elsa performed her poem along with many others of our group!
