View the Logan Center Calendar for a full list of programs, or see what is coming soon by signing up for our newsletter or connecting with us through social media.
Family and Community Programs
The Logan Center is committed to working with the Arts + Public Life initiative and many other partners to provide programming that is open to the community and events that are family-friendly. Everyone is welcome to attend public events, many of which are free, at the Logan Center.
This fall the Logan Center will be a site for the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, World Music Day, Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Open House Chicago, Chicago Ideas Week, and Facets Multimedia’s Chicago International Children’s Film Festival. These events will all provide a chance to see what the Logan Center has to offer – and what it has in store. Bring the whole family, or come explore on your own.
Logan Center Family Saturdays offer monthly family programs that included a series of matinee concerts, produced by University of Chicago Presents, and interactive workshops presented in partnership with local artists, arts organizations, and student organizations. The new series will begin in Fall 2013.
Summer Arts Workshops
The Logan Center and Arts and Public Life provide summer opportunities for adults and teens to explore storytelling, dance, filmmaking, theater, and visual arts.
The Logan Center provides performance and exhibition spaces for groups on campus and programs geared toward highlighting student artists. These programs aim to expand arts opportunities for students, both as audience members and as presenters.
