The Arts, and not The Arts
First, though everyone would want to know that the Historic Chicago Bungalow and Green Home Expo 2009 is taking place this Saturday, October, 17, 2009, from 10 am to 4 pm.
It is taking place at the Merchandise Mart, located at the Chicago River and Wells Street, in Chicago for those that are geographically challenged. Free admission, raffle prizes, 20 workshops, more than 100 exhibitors, artisans, lenders and tradespeople. Grants and loans for energy improvements.
I have gone in the past and even though I do not own a bungalow, it was a good time.
The 16th Street Theater is gearing up for our third season(I am President of the Board), to begin in January, 2010, just around the corner. Join the one hundred club now to get in on the season for an incredible value. You can order online, via credit card, and slowly pay off your bill so it will not even affect you.
Go to www.16thstreettheatre.org for all the details. The season looks to be very fun, thought-provoking and cool.
Engaging. Intimate. Professional theater. Join us for Season Three 2010.
WHAT IS HOME?
A place. A city. A house. A beginning. Is home something we take with us when we leave it? Does it move with us, or is it something we leave behind? What are the boundaries of home? Is our home big enough for others? How does the meaning of home change as we age? Can we ever go back?
These are some of the questions six, great Chicago writers will be posing throughout 2010 as we ask you to explore with us: What is Home?
Joel Drake Johnson's The End of the Tour, Our Lady of the Underpass by Tanya Saracho, a remount of Rohina's Unveiled at Victory Gardens (told you it would be back!), a 2-week limited engagement of Tony Fitzpatrick with musical guests, Michael Fosberg's Incognito, and the world premiere of Rob Koon's Menorca. Join the 100 Club to take it all in, or become a 3-play subscriber. I look forward to seeing you at 16the Street at the Berwyn Cultural Center, a part of the North Berwyn Park District.
And, if the above is not enough, POEfest is coming at you from Saturday, October 24th through Friday, October 30, 2009. There will be something different each night. The events are sponsored by the Berwyn Arts Council. Some great stuff will be happening from the first Tortured Tuesday to a kids' costume parade.
Join in the fun as Berwyn celebrates Edgar Allen Poe's 200th birthday with storytelling, poetry reading, movies, music, art and beer. Yep. Check out the events at http://berwynartscouncil.org/poefest2009.html
Gotta love it!
