The Arts of Life Associate Board Presents: Art on a Hot Tin Roof 2016

Saturday, July 30, 2016 - 6:00pm

What: A chic rooftop party featuring live artists, food, drinks, music and a raffle of exceptional gifts. All proceeds will benefit The Arts of Life, which for more than nine years has offered a unique work environment for adults with developmental and physical disabilities in Chicago.

Who: Chicagoans interested in a night of ‘hot art’ on the roof while networking with a diverse group of professionals, artists, and entrepreneurs.

Why: Originally founded by twelve individuals with a passion for artistic expression and a need for an alternate system, The Arts of Life strives to provide a person-centric and compassionate community where each member takes ownership and has an equal voice in the day-to-day decisions being made.

In 2009, Illinois ranked third for the number of individuals with disabilities living in institutions in the United States. Not only are institutions extremely expensive, but also lack opportunities for personal and professional development and treatment with human dignity. As an alternative day program, The Arts of Life offers an exceptional model for community and collaboration among artists with and without disabilities.

Our Associate Board would love to meet you and your friends while enjoying the scenery and support of this amazing non-profit! 

Purchase Tickets: Tickets are on sale now at! Early Bird Tickets are $65 (on sale until June 20), General Admission TIckets are $75, and At-The-Door Tickets will be $80.


LIVE ART was the inspiration for this event. Guest artist Tim Stone (The Arts of Life) will be painting against an amazing cityscape on the rooftop.

MUSIC by CHIRP Radio! We believe CHIRP shares our model for non-profit and community values, and we look forward to having them provide the jams. CHIRP is a volunteer-driven, online community radio station that focuses on music, arts, and culture.
