The City of Chicago is currently in Phase Four: "Gradually Resume." Many City services have adjusted hours or locations and may require health screens prior to entering their physical spaces. Please call ahead or visit any department's website to get additional details, or visit chicago.gov/covid-19.
Based on Chicago's key health metrics, the city is currently in Phase 3 (Cautiously Reopen). The health and safety of our guests and staff remain our highest priority. As such, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events is closely monitoring developments around the Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19) and sharing safeguards and best practices as outlined by city and state officials. Please refer to the Chicago Department of Public Heath’s website, chicago.gov/coronavirus, for the latest local updates on the response to COVID-19.
The Chicago Cultural Center is closed to the public. All events, programs and tours are canceled until further notice.
The Learning Lab is a place to engage and experiment with aspects of all DCASE cultural programming. Watch archival footage of guests at past DCASE events on a vintage TV set, hear the sounds of upcoming DCASE music festivals, try your hand at mural making like Keith Haring on our chalk wall, touch pieces of the building to get a feel of the sumptuous materials used to create this golden age building and more!
The Chicago Cultural Center's Learning Lab invites artists to share their craft in hands-on "Meet an Artist" programs. As the Chicago Cultural Center remains closed to the public in response to COVID-19, we invite artists to propose activities that can be shared with the public through live video. We are especially interested in activities that align with the Year of Chicago Music. For more information and the application, visit Meet an Artist in the Learning Lab.
