Founded in 1987, Marwen offers free visual arts education to young people from Chicago’s under-resourced neighborhoods. You’ll be awed by a stunning space and inspired by the young people and artists who have built a deep community at Marwen. Along with a tasty meal, you’ll be part of an artist-led experience that utilizes the tools of art practice to build community and collectively develop ideas that build towards social change.
Menu: Baby spinach salad with toasted walnuts, crumbled blue cheese, and lemon vinaigrette; artisan breads and rolls with butter (classic French baguette with brioche, sesame semolina, and harvest dinner rolls); balsamic and honey glazed Amish chicken breasts; stuffed tomatoes with dried cranberries, wild rice, and toasted almonds; roasted fingerling potatoes with sea salt; seared brussels sprouts and roasted butternut squash; and assorted housemade bars (decadent chocolate brownies, raspberry crumble bars, and brown butter rice krispie treats)
