Close Encounters: Paint Your Feelings

  • Hairpin Arts Center 2810 North Milwaukee Avenue (2nd Floor) Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

For our final CLOSE ENCOUNTER, we invite you to paint or draw the spectacles that percolate within your mind as we play–with a little help from a professional artist, of course. We're beside ourselves to have Katherine Desjardins, on faculty at the University Of Chicago, as our painting instructor and inspirer for this event.

Schoenberg himself was a pretty exceptional painter, using self-portraiture as a way to unlock his own interior life, and with the aid of some...talent juice...we’re intrigued to see what emerges for you as you put brush to canvas–while we provide the musical inspiration.
