Join us on the Vernal Equinox to celebrate the transition of the season – we will be lowering Winter Burst the Steam Pipe! by Nancy Lu Rosenheim, and raising the Spring flag by Robin Hustle 🏴
Woman’s Club is a collaborative initiative by The Cuckoo’s Theater Project and Roman Susan Art Foundation. The spring installation will be on display throughout the season – March 20 through June 20, 2019.
Founded by ten women in 1891, the Rogers Park Woman’s Club expanded to 900 members and worked for over a century to provide social and cultural services in North Chicago before disbanding in 1996. Early projects undertaken by RPWC included establishment of a public library and reading room, and the founding of pre-elementary school education – the former incorporated into the Chicago Public Library, the latter into the Chicago Public School system in the late 19th century. On the 25th anniversary of RPWC, the organization commissioned a clubhouse built at 7077 North Ashland Boulevard, which housed RPWC activities into the early 1980s.
The Cuckoo’s Theater Project purchased the historic site in 2016 and are in the process of rehabilitating the interior to become a dedicated performing arts center for Rogers Park. The Cuckoo’s Theater Project produces works that expose the discomforts of human nature. By navigating the struggle as a community, we seek to find light within the darkness in the hopes of creating a brighter future. For more information, please visit thecuckoostheaterproject.com
