TEA Presents: The Death Salon
February 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Third Estate Art presents the first salon of our 2020 series, this time all about death! Artists and activists will each use 10-20 minutes to showcase their work. As an audience member, you can expect to see death approached in poems, paintings, music, and social justice as we explore the effects of death on ourselves and the world around us.
The event will end with a Q&A.
Featured guests include:
* Cynthia Pelayo, Writer
Cynthia will give a presentation about our collective true crime obsession that asks: Why are there so many documentaries and podcasts about this kind of death?
* Khloe Janel, Poet + Actor
Khloe will read poems and perform a spoken word.
* Connie Toebe, Painter
Connie will show and discuss her paintings of extinct species.
* Ed Gogol, President of Final Options Illinois
Ed will discuss his work in coalition with the national group Compassion & Choices to advocate for Medical Aid In Dying (MAID) in Illinois.
TICKETS ARE FREE, BUT REGISTERING AT THE SITE IS RECOMMENDED – DONATIONS ACCEPTED
Third Estate Art NFP is a 501(c)3. We are a group of artists and activists who create public art about social issues. We also partner with city parks to bring art to kids’ events and into field houses. We believe in paying artists for their time and work, so every presenter (or their organization) at the salon will receive an honorarium. We set up a pay-what-you-can system for buying tickets, so please consider paying a little extra when you buy yours–your money goes right into recouping our venue costs and paying the presenters.
