Pop-Up Workshop: Villa Park

Saturday, Jul 17th, 2021
7:00 PM–10:00 PM

We are proud to partner with Chicago Mobile Makers to co-host four pop-up workshops throughout Chicago and the suburbs. Mobile Makers and EAM staff will be located at:

Jefferson Middle School
255 W Vermont
Villa Park, IL 60181
In collaboration with Chicago Mobile Makers, Borderless Studio, and Creative Grounds.

This Spring and Summer, the Mobile Makers truck will feature images from our current exhibition In Focus: The Chicago Freedom Movement & the Fight for Fair Housing. While outside the truck, we will feature a hands-on activity from our Activist Art Kits, generously provided by the Goethe-Institut. Participants will design kites with messages of activism and positivity to fly in their neighborhoods.

Chicago Mobile Makers creates programming that encourages Chicago youth to become advocates and change-makers in their own communities through design-focused skill-building workshops.

This event is part of our Art is for Everyone education program. It is generously supported in part by McDonald’s and a grant from the League of Chicago Theatres and ComEd.

In Focus is generously sponsored by the JCS Arts, Health and Education Fund of the DuPage Foundation and David C. & Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation
