Bodies, Books, and Buildings: The Aging Salon
@ New Rhythm Arts Center
1441 W Morse Ave, Chicago, IL 60626
Opening Saturday, November 16th, from 7PM - 9PM
Third Estate Art presents the last salon in its 2019 series, this time all about aging. Artists and activists will each use 10-20 minutes to showcase their work. As an audience member, you can expect to see paintings, movement, poetry, an interview, and a bookbinding demonstration as we explore the effects of aging on ourselves and the world around us.
The event will end with a Q&A.
Featured guests include:
* Raymond Noesen, Preservationist + Artist
Ray will show examples of art and architecture in historic buildings he has helped to restore, including the proscenium arch mural at the Chicago Theater.
* Jacob Saenz, Poet
Jacob will perform the hell out of some poems on aging.
* Elaine Soloway, Writer
Elaine will discuss her philosophy of aging in an interview format.
* Rebekah McFarland, Bookbinder
Rebekah will discuss her work restoring manuscripts and demonstrate techniques of book repair.
* Donyae Joho, Painter + Performer
Donyae will show paintings and share their accompanying poems about the emotional and spiritual effects of aging.
Third Estate Art NFP is a 501(c)3. We are a group of artists and activists who create public art about social issues. We also partner with city parks to bring art to kids’ events and into field houses. We believe in paying artists for their time and work, so every presenter (or their organization) at the salon will receive an honorarium. We set up a pay-what-you-can system for buying tickets, so please consider paying a little extra when you buy yours–your money goes right into recouping our venue costs and paying the presenters.
