King of the Chicago Street Photographers Mike Pocius brings us this year’s documentation of his travels through out Chicago. The cast of characters and wild compositions were spontaneously photographed on streets of Chicago at the various parades, festivals and art walks which take place in some of his favorite neighborhoods. Some of these folks are too strange to believe. His photos speak volumes about an ever changing city exploding with life and activity.
Come see it Friday, December 13th at Cobalt 6-10.30PM.
For the night owls…We will have a post reception party around the corner at The Barrel, Chicago…Pilsen’s newest addition. They will be serving all locally brewed craft beers and boast the largest Bourbon Selection available.
Cobalt would like to extend an invitation to all those who have wanted to see this one of a kind body of work. This will be the final public viewing. We wish to send off Mr. Billings with a celebration. There will be music and refreshments. After Ten P.M. head over to The Barrel, Chicago for a night cap and a look at some collaboration paintings by Thomas Billings and Antonio Martinez on display now through mid-December.
For the past five years Teresa Magana has put together an all day drop in craft day dedicated to making crafts for Dia De Los Muertos.
We are grateful and excited about how this day grows every year with more friends, family and the public coming together to make beautiful and creative crafts for Day of the Dead.
Please join us in creating an assortment of crafts for Dia de los Muertos. Some of the craft stations will include, skullie painting, mask painting, tissue paper flower making, and more.
