Art of Jazz in Evanston

The Music Institute of Chicago, in partnership with the Institute for Therapy through the Arts, is proud to present its innovative Art of Jazz project at Church Square Plaza (Church St. and Maple Ave.) in Evanston.  This event is free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of the Evanston Arts Council.

Taking place on Saturday August 18th from 12 PM-3 PM, all pedestrians are invited to contribute to a community art piece that will showcase Evanston’s diversity, artistic talents, and culture. Inspiration for the artwork will be provided by jazz musicians Eli Goroff-Behel, Gage Bachmann, and Lincoln Updike. They will be performing jazz works by Chicago-born jazz musician and pianist Herbie Hancock, which will be used as inspiration for the work for all community artists.


Upon completion, this community art piece will be displayed at the Music Institute of Chicago’s Sherman office (1702 Sherman Avenue) and the Institute for Therapy through the Arts (2130 Green Bay Rd) in Evanston.

Join us for this special event!
