The Arts of Life is turning twenty this summer! Help us celebrate our milestone anniversary by invoking the spirit of the nineties at a summer event like no other. Guests will enjoy an open bar and photo booth, compete to win exciting raffle prizes, and get down to the decade’s flyest music. You could walk home from our silent auction with a number of luxury items, a fanny pack full of surprises, or even an original piece by one of the Arts of Life artists.
The Arts of Life Associate Board is excited for you to be a part of this celebration honoring the history and connections that made the Arts of life the community it is today, and a beneficial way of empowering our collective future(s). This will be a fun way of helping a unique program offer opportunities to working artists at the Arts of Life.
In early January 2000, Arts of Life opened its doors, guided by a progressive vision to put inclusivity and creativity first in the support of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. At the time, Arts of Life was the only Alternative Day Program in Chicago with a specific focus on artistic vocational opportunities. From our start with 10 intrepid artists, we have expanded to support 60 artists in two studios. We have opened two galleries and participated in exhibitions in Chicago-land and beyond. We have forged creative and fruitful partnerships and built lasting relationships. Thank you for helping us reach this remarkable milestone.
The Arts of Life will be presenting this event at Revolution Brewing in Logan Square. A percentage of the night’s earnings to The Arts of Life, a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts program for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
