AMP-CHI Artists, Musicians, and Poets of Chicago CAM2010 at Elastic Sound and Vision Gallery, 2830 N. Milwaukee Ave
|AMP- CHI Featured Artist Hanah Jon Taylor Artet|
Last Saturday's event was a grand success artistically. We now have a wonderful group painting that was done just that evening, and will use our second canvas next Saturday. The poets were captivating. Their message was heart- and gut-wrenching, and the audience was completely caught up with their words. The music was even better than I had hoped. The musicians all know each other well, and have played together in various combinations and that was reflected in their music. Both the poets and the band have a recording of their performances that was taped by Elastic.
And did I mention the food? Friendship donated a large platter of crab rangoon and another huge platter of sushi. That in addition to what Alpha and I brought.
We had also invited the neighborhood artisans who create lucha libre masks and sell them at events such as this. They were pleased to be included, as they sold some masks as well as jewelry.
We expect a similar wonderful event this week-end. Your help to get the word out will help us.
