BACK ALLEY JAZZ

July 14, 2018, 2-8pm

 

Back Alley Jazz is a free community event led by Chicago artists Fo Wilson and Norman Teague, in collaboration with the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, the Hyde Park Art Center, and South Shore residents.

Conceived as a one-day event in 2018, the project presents musicians, artists, and designers in garages and alleys in the South Shore neighborhood, creating a contemporary neighborhood happening that builds on and celebrates Chicago’s history of the neighborhood jam, as inspired by the original Jazz in the Alley events.

In 2018 Back Alley Jazz will occur in and between four local garages on S. Paxton between 73rd and 74th. Teams of artists, designers, and musicians will transform the space of the garage with temporary installations and performances throughout the day. There will also be hands-on activities available for participants of all ages.
