Annual Meeting 2019
Live the art of the South Loop
We rush through streets under the spell of the routine, leaving the beauty of our city obscured in shades of grey. It’s when we stop to breathe in our culture that we nourish the artist within. In this city, we live art and it keeps us creating and it keeps us dreaming. We Chicagoans dream beyond the canvas, and our passion for art shines onto city walls from our hearts, creating the street art that colors the dreams we live in.
Come experience the artistic passion of Chicago and join C3 in exploring the street art of the South Loop through a dazzling walking-tour of the Wabash Arts Corridor. Saturday, June 29, members of C3 and their guests will be inspired by a tour of the Big Walls murals in the South Loop, which were created under the direction of and through the unique and immersive curatorial stylings of Lindsey Meyers and Simone Garcia of Beauty & Brawn.
The walk begins with the mural at State and Washington and our spirits stir as we continue southwards to enjoy many more. Experience authentic Chicago culture by getting intimately acquainted with murals created by world-renowned visionaries in the world of street art.
Family-style lunch will be held at Amarit Thai restaurant following the beautifully curated Wabash Arts Corridor Tour.
After lunch we will hold the C3 Annual Meeting – the real reason for this get-together! We will hear the directors’ reports, and hold the election of board members for the 2019 – 2020 year. Board nominations are open and any member can run and/or volunteer for a committee. C3 members: please attend to help shape and direct the organization.
