Financial support provides: free participation in arts programs and activities for kids and adults; acclaimed contemporary arts exhibitions; academically-enhanced ArtReach programs including docent-led field trips for 2,000 students a year.
The MC for the evening will be Ron Magers, former news anchor for ABC Chicago. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid by text during the interactive auction; buy a chance to win a painting by local artists, Jay Zerbe or Karl Warren; enjoy sophisticated Latin/Caribbean rhythm and beats by drummer, Scott Johnson of Callaloo; cha cha, samba, and rumba with the Latin Dance Showcase students and staff of Dimensions School of Social Dance.
Scott Johnson is the steel drummer for Chicago’s premier world fusion steelpan group Callaloo. Callaloo has performed at the Taste of Chicago, Chicago Botanic Gardens Concert Series, WGN Midday News, Global Fest, and many more.

Bilderback states, “We are thrilled to be partnering with Lubeznik Center on this year’s Havana Nights Artbash, and can’t wait to show off our talented students and staff in a variety of Latin dances!”
