(REFLECTION IN THE BEAN!)
Echad has just returned from the Windy City! It was a week-long trip, and being the only one of the group who hadn’t been, I was extra excited, and extra touristy! We visited museums, stores, tall buildings (& short buildings), art galleries, THE BEAN, local coffee shops, and had our fill of deep dish pizza! And obviously, my camera and I bonded really well.
We met a lot of new faces, saw familiar old faces, and had the opportunity to perform at a local coffee shop: J. J. Javas!
Our event, entitled Ignite, combined our weeks of work in digital art, music, photography, and spoken word into one evening of artistic exploration (read a more in-depth explanation of our work in the post by Jeremiah, below). Unlike our performance in New York, which was held at the Jews for Jesus branch in Manhattan, this performance engaged and witnessed to local college students doing their homework, Chicago caffeine addicts, and friends who traveled from near and far to support our work.
We pray that we inspired, encouraged, and planted seeds of truth in the minds and hearts of those around us! Keep us in your prayers as we attempt to continue this work, both across the country, and here in New York!
