Youth performers providing timeless gifts at the Epiphany Center Posted: Jul 10, 2022 / 08:23 PM CDT
Joan Collaso and Tre Lee join Rick Kogan in studio to talk about Timeless Gifts, a youth mentoring program and their four concerts happening at Epiphany Center for the Arts on July 11th, 12th, 18th, and 19th. They later discuss the origin of the organization, how the quarantine might have affected performances, and how Timeless Gifts has affected not only the youth that take part in the program, but the professionals that work with the organization as well.
About Epiphany Center for the Arts
Conceived with the vision to return Epiphany to a place for people to congregate, the shuttered, historic Church of the Epiphany has been preserved and adapted into the Epiphany Center for the Arts, an iconic cultural hub “For the Good of Art, Entertainment and Events.” Thoughtfully designed, the exemplary 42,000-square-foot campus located on the artsy edge of Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood boasts three distinct venues (Epiphany Hall, The Sanctuary and The Chase House) and a stunning array of amenities. The campus also features eight galleries that serve as a platform for a diverse selection of artists from Chicago and beyond. Epiphany’s exhibitions showcase the work of women, the LGBTQIA community, artists of color, and the disability culture. Epiphany’s top priority is to curate programming that is inclusive, while providing a place established artists can collaborate with emerging ones. Epiphany’s programming serves to unite community and artists alike while “Bringing Chicago Together.” Visit www.epiphanychi.com to learn more.
