Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events>> DCASE News & Events - January 2017
The Juicebox family music and performance series brings hip
hop, world music, jazz and more to entertain and educate young children
this winter and spring. Geared toward the "stroller set" but enjoyed by
the whole family, performers at the free series include Jabberwocky
Marionettes, Laura Doherty & The Hearbeats and Trinity Academy of
Irish Dance. The series runs 11-11:45am, January 6 to May 20 on
alternating Fridays at the Chicago Cultural Center and Saturdays at the
Garfield Park Conservatory. View the full schedule.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Department of Cultural Affairs and
Special Events have declared 2017 as the "Year of Public Art" in
Chicago with a new 50x50 Neighborhood Arts Project, the creation of a
Public Art Youth Corps, a new Public Art Festival, exhibitions,
performances, tours and more. The citywide celebration commemorates the
50th anniversary of two of our most seminal public artworks - the
Picasso in Daley Plaza and the Wall of Respect which once stood at 43rd
Street and Langley Avenue on the South Side - and highlights the
important role that public art has played in Chicago's history. For more
