The Arts on Chicago Initiative continues in 2014 with three unique arts activities: Peter Haakon Thompson’s Temporary Table Tennis Trailer, Esther Ouray’s In the Pursuit of Happiness, and video from David Luke’s Upstream Animated.
These Arts on Chicago 2014 projects will be on display at the 38th and Chicago BBQ and Music Festival on June 14. This celebration is aligned with the 38th and Chicago Business Association’s 9th annual BBQ & Music Festival from 11am to 3pm on the 3700 block of Chicago Avenue. The event will include music from Joel Schaan & Friends, Bozza Jazz Band, Project 55407, and The Anchorman plus specialty food trucks, children’s activities and snow cones will be available as this busy intersection is closed for the day.
Funding for 2014 Arts on Chicago projects is provided, in part, by the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, as part of Blue Cross’ long-term commitment to tackling the four leading causes of heart disease and cancer: tobacco use, obesity, lack of physical activity and unhealthy eating. Each of the projects combines art with active living in some fashion.
