Cultural Arts Interest Group
Group events are planned for the enjoyment of our branch members and their guests. With our convenient location within easy reach of a wide array of suburban and Chicago theaters and museums, we annually plan 3 – 4 group outings to plays, musical performances, fine art venues and more throughout Chicagoland.
Cultural Arts event information is available at branch meetings and in Twigs.
