October 1, 2008. A multimedia event on the windows of the Flat Iron Arts Building that will bring the art out to the streets of Wicker Park and Bucktown, a neighborhood that enjoys the best best night life in the city of Chicago.

On these two nights the passerby’s will be able to look up and see the works of the artitsts being projected from the inside of the building out.

There will be a puppet show by Jojo Baby and a shadow theater presentation by students of the Art Institute, some live performances are in the lineup as well as a slide-show of artworks and ideas loosely following Gandhi’s Seven Deadly Sins as our own theme.

The show will take place from 10 to 11pm on Friday October 10th and then again on Saturday the 11th.

We are a CHICAGO ARTISTS MONTH featured event on this year’s theme “Artists and issues that matter”

  • Wealth without Work
  • Pleasure without Conscience
  • Science without Humanity
  • Knowledge without Character
  • Politics without Principle
  • Commerce without Morality
