FINE ARTS

at DANK Haus German American Cultural Center

From the great composers, poets, and painters of the past to the incredible modern art of today, the arts have been central to German and German American culture.  One can regularly see and hear phenomenal work presented by renowned artists in the beautiful spaces at DANK Haus German American Cultural Center.

Our 4th Floor Scharpenberg Gallery hosts rotating exhibits by German American artists, as well as displays of cultural significance presented in partnership with the Chicago Cultural Alliance

Classical concerts, plays, cabarets, and dance performances regularly appear in our 5th floor Marunde Ballroom and 6th floor Skyline Lounge.  The cultural center's Programming Committee curates the performing arts series, featuring critically acclaimed singers, instrumentalists, actors, dancers, and ensembles from Chicago and around the world.

Upcoming events

    • Friday, November 10, 2017
    • 5:30 PM - 10:30 PM
    • Lyric Opera House

    After the great success of our partnership with the Lyric Opera in 2016, we are thrilled to have another DANK Haus Night at the Lyric in 2017. Due to the popular demand last year we have expanded this special over three dates. Members, students, volunteers and supporters of DANK Haus get to enjoy an orchestral firework with Richard Wagner’s Die Walküre.

    This is the most deeply moving and romantic of all the Ring operas. Its riveting, devastating drama involves complex relationships between brother and sister, husband and wife, father and daughter. Every character is unforgettable—valiant Siegmund and Sieglinde, headstrong Brünnhilde and mighty, tortured Wotan, determined Fricka and vengeful Hunding. Wagner’s music drama burns itself on our memories, exciting us with the emotional intensity of its lyrical outbursts and its incredible power and majesty.

    When purchasing your tickets on https://www.lyricopera.org, make sure to use the special promo code DANKHAUS39. (Note – Zone restrictions apply and the code is valid for many, but not all seats at the Lyric).
