Wicker Park Lutheran Church periodically hosts an open series of Friday exhibitions called “Arts Sanctuary: A Haven for the Arts.” The series brings together the arts and our community while exploring connections between art and spirituality. Arts Sanctuary exhibitions typically involve a thematic element that is interpreted and presented through various artistic media (which have included the spoken word, choral music, painting, and sculpture), in combination with live music, church-brewed beer, and an offering taken at the door to benefit a local social service agency. It is a smashing, one-of-a-kind event!
NEXT EXHIBIT: July 14, 2017 from 7-9 p.m.
EXHIBITION TITLE: Community, Welcome, and Unity
Arts Sanctuary is a one-night exhibition striving to create a shared arts experience between practicing Chicago artists and their local community.
This upcoming exhibition will feature work that incorporates, gives voice to, and interacts with our greater Chicago community and beyond. There will be music and a sampling of craft beer from Wicker Park Lutheran Church’s brew group. Proceeds from the event will benefit the organization Interfaith Committee for Detained Immigrants.
