There’s always something to do in the Windy City, and this weekend is no exception. This week we’ve headlined a classic silent film brought to life with music, great live shows in the area, and a fun art project for the whole family. Let’s get to it!
The Golem film screening with music by Fulcrum Point, Friday @ 7 pm at the Chicago Cultural Center
The Golem is the classic 1920 silent horror film (click here for reviews) from motion picture pioneer Paul Wegener. The film depicts an ancient Jewish morality story about power, politics, magic and survival.
Fulcrum Point is a 5-member (string quartet and clarinet) group that will provide the film’s original score to go along with the film. The Golem will be shown at the Chicago Cultural Center and admission is free! Click here for complete details.
Family Days: Art without Borders, Saturday from 11 am – 3 pm at the Museum of Contemporary Art
The new season of Family Days continues as families explore the work of contemporary artist Liam Gillick, whose work is now on view in the museum. Families can experiment with their own designs, stories, and ways of making art by learning how Gillick draws from his world to create art.
Admission to this event is also free of charge, and it’s a great way to provide some intellectual and creative stimulation for your kids on the weekend. Click here for full details on the event.
