Thank you for your investment in our students and our community... All of us at Lydia Urban Academy are so grateful to for the opportunity we had to participate in Around the Corner 2015. Our students were treated with such respect and encouraged to grow as individuals and artists. To have such positive interactions with adults in the community is priceless. Thank you for continuing to include us in this wonderful experience as you begin planning the second annual event.
I’ve had a lot of people literally laugh in my face when I mention I’m trying to do art professionally and I’m going to art school. The first Around the Corner show was really emotional for me because I had multiple people come up to me and give me support. Although I receive support from close friends and family, the positive feedback I received that day felt especially special. They’re good people there, and I appreciate them a lot.
I take seriously the art making, as an artist I think is the best way to express our inner soul in a beautiful way. Thank you guys to help promote the arts between our youth, they need it.
Had a good time tonight, everyone! As a Chicago resident of 11 years, I had no idea that Avondale had so many tucked away gems! Thanks for showing them to me.
Around The Corner has literally been a life-changing experience for me. It provided me with a taste of what it’s really like to be a professional artist showing in a gallery setting. It also introduced me to many important people, even some who became mentors to me.
Thanks again for including UpBeat and our students at Around the Corner 2016. It was a great opportunity for students to perform and get more connected with the local music and arts community.
I personally want to thank all of you for your support of young artists and your hard work in pulling this show together. It really does mean a lot to the students and their parents. Schools need the support of these outside organizations and the feedback was just great from both parents and students. I cannot thank you enough and I appreciate your time spent at the show with the parents and especially the students. God bless your efforts and you continue this work.
The trolley was full of dancing, music, and fun!
This was a great event! Loved the entertainment and was impressed by the organization and food from all places except one: At 8:15 Parachute had just a Horchata drink and had apparently stopped serving popcorn because "they thought no one was coming"... Sort of lame, but everywhere else was great! We really enjoyed the event
When NAC partnered with City News Café on National Small Business Saturday they helped create a welcoming sense of place and a magical experience for all that came into the store.
It was a wonderful event. Very nice to see all the students stand proudly by their work displayed in such a lovely space.
