arciTEXT 2015.


arciTEXT, our 3rd annual short works festival, kicks off our season with exciting new work exploring the topic of “Mortal Sin.”  Each year, The Arc challenges the Chicago Artist Community to come up with original new works inspired by a literary theme taking any and all liberties.  The Arc curates a symposium of some of the most provocative artists in Chicago to facilitate an intriguing discussion of our featured theme. arciTEXT is a fun, casual evening of cocktails and commiseration and all are invited to the conversation.

arciTEXT will take place at “The Frontier” at 1106 Thorndale off the Thorndale Red Line stop

Saturday April 11th and Sunday April 12th, 2015
Doors open at 6:30pm, Show at 7:30pm
Admission is $10 CASH ONLY and includes a complimentary beverage
