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.

    Ursa EnsembleCollaboration In Concert events combine live music, art creation, and audience participation. A guest artist is invited to teach the audience a few “tricks of the trade,” typically focusing on one element of their craft.

    Then, the Ursas perform! During this performance, audience members use their newly-taught art skills to create an art piece guided by the music they are hearing and seeing.

    Get tickets here!

    This program will feature visual artist Melanie Brown, and works by Messiaen, Martinu, Milhaud, Lutoslawski, and Webern.

    Stick around after the show to tell us/show us what you heard!

    Light Snacks and Full Bar available
