About this event:
WHAT: The second block party in and around the best art museum
SO WHAT: The Art Institute is hosting their second annual Block Party! This is a full day of performances, talks, storytelling, and art making in and around the entire museum. This year they’re taking a special look at the lives of things: how does the meaning of an artwork or an object change over time: as it moves; changes hands, places, or functions; or when it becomes part of a collection? Check out their full lineup of activities at their event page!
NOW WHAT: Entry is $10 for Illinois residents only through midnight on July 20,. Tickets purchased online after midnight or onsite on July 21 will be at the regular museum admission rates ($25). There will also be a concert by Jamila Woods following the Block Party at 7:00pm! Tickets for Jamila Woods’ show are available here.
