Do you remember Wicker Park in the 90’s? We’re bringing it Back to Life!
Join Heaven Gallery for its art auction benefit, raffle and dance party celebrating 22 years of art and community. This vibrant arts era was the genesis of Heaven Gallery - beginning as an experimental DIY space, cementing itself as a Chicago arts institution, and reaching its ultimate destiny of challenging arts displacement. Heaven creates a utopia where we are free to jack our bodies and come together as ceremonial placekeepers. Back to Life celebrates this communal re-awakening for an equitable future - where everyone's a VIP.

On this celestial night we express gratitude through dance with music by club culture curator DJ Blesstonio and the legendary Lady of the House DJ Celeste Alexander!
