“Pivot Arts’ POP UP! PERFORMANCE SERIES occurs monthly at local businesses and empty storefronts throughout the Far North Side. Pivot Arts’ partnerships with local businesses help boost the local economy by bringing arts patrons directly to establishments in Chicago’s Uptown and Edgewater neighborhoods. Past POP UP! business partners have included FLATS Chicago, Independent Spirits, Lickity Split Custard and Sweets, Hopleaf, Metropolis Coffee, Kitchen Sink and Burke’s Pub.”
“Pivot Arts brings fascinating pop-up performances to nontraditional spaces, including local businesses in Edgewater,” comments Katrina Balog, Executive Director of the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce. “The success of the events for the businesses is a clear indicator of the importance of arts and culture in economic growth.”
