We had such a great time doing Moods + Foods last year, we are doing it again this summer!
Performances set the mood in Woodard Plaza, where Diversey Ave, Milwaukee Ave, and Kimball Ave come together. Community members can pick up food at nearby eateries and bring it to the plaza to eat and hang out.
We are still filling in a few gaps in the schedule, but we can tell you that some familiar faces will be back at Woodard Plaza this summer. Rent Party will kick off the season on July 12 (above). Marianne and the Imaginary Band will play an eclectic mix of music on July 19. Stann Champion and Hassan El-Tayyab worked so well together last summer they are going to share July 26th. La Pompe Chicago was a big hit in the summer finale, so we had to bring them back on August 16. August 23 is Literary Night with Cynthia Gallaher and Carlos Cumpian and others. To close out on August 30, The Winnemac 3 will be playing New Orleans-style jazz. Stomp your feet!
Performances will take place Thursday evenings from 6pm to 7:30pm at Woodard Plaza, 2819 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago. Crown Liquors has a comfortable patio on the Plaza; you may be served by Justine and carry your drinks onto the patio to enjoy the show.
We owe a HUGE thank you to Activate Chicago, a partnership between Latent Design and the City of Chicago, which brings pop-up arts programs to unexpected spaces.
