The Strauss Park ALIVE Festival will transform Strauss Park, located in the heart of the Grand Center Arts District, into an 8-week, summer-themed celebration of arts and life! Join us for the ALIVE Kick-Off and happy hour on July 5th, or enjoy any of the weekly scheduled events such as live music, dance, spoken word, theatre, and other family-friendly activities.
Variation and Adaptations, on display 6/2/17 through 7/29/17, is an exhibit curated by Artists First, an organization that has long worked to promote the artwork of individuals challenged by physical or psychological obstacles. While typically judged by society as impaired, this organization advocates for these artists to be considered as equal, not other, within the visual art community by their unique perspectives and life experiences. Angela Gipson, Jeff Johnson, and Jimmy Holmes will each present a body of work specific to their use of media and focused examinations.
"Subterranean Books will be hosting the art work of Timothy Wagner as part of the Loop Arts Fest, with an opening reception Friday, June 23rd from 6pm to 8pm.
Timothy Wagner works as a mixed media artist using a wide variety of media from found imagery to inks. All of the art is created on reclaimed materials such as vinyl records, wood and canvas.
Timothy's work is thought-provoking and a visual language that is an approach to expression of form, space and color, referencing our natural world and its surroundings. "The ambiguity of my work is created on a subconscious level."
Work will be on display June 15 - August 31.
Fri, 06/23/2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Subterranean Books is located at:

The theme for the 2017 season of the University City Summer Band is Friends of the U City Summer Band. Over our previous twenty seasons, the band has collaborated with a plethora of guest conductors, soloists and composers. This year we will be celebrating with some of those musicians, including: Erica Neidlinger from DePaul University (conductor), Joe Pappas (conductor and composer), Pam Smith-Kelly (conductor featuring the music of her dad, Claude T. Smith), Jared Spears (composer), Shelly Monier (Flute), Gary Gackstatter (composer & conductor), and Frank Haspiel (composer & conductor). Members of the band to be featured as conductors include: Ron Stilwell, Matt McKeever, Bette Welch and Kurt Bauche.
The band’s repertoire includes marches, showtunes, jazz, original pieces for band, light classics, patriotic selections, popular music and transcriptions – we guarantee something for everyone from young children to senior citizens. Dine at one of the many restaurants in the University City and Loop area and then join us for a relaxing concert in the park.
Blending bluegrass and hip-hop may seem like an unlikely recipe for success, but don’t tell that to Rench, the mastermind behind the Emmy-nominated bluegrass/hip-hop outfit Gangstagrass.After settling in Brooklyn, Rench started recording MCs at Rench Audio Studios, his home studio. The rappers may have thought their sessions were finished, but Rench continued to experiment, combining the vocal tracks with samples of bluegrass, blues, and electronic beats. The result was a genre-demolishing blitz called Rench Presents: Gangstagrass. When it became available as a free download on the internet, people took notice fast.
