Art-Work Launch Party
On September 19, 2007 Catalyst Ranch hosted a most amazing Launch Party to announce the formation of an innovative corporate training program called Art-Work. Art-Work is a proprietary offering from the Art Institute of Chicago and Catalyst Ranch where arts learning techniques are applied to corporate training objectives. For more information go to:
The party was truly an experiential event where guests were greeted on the street by artist acrobats and a fire eater from the Actors Gymnasium along with actors in costumes from the musical theatrical show “A Sunday in the Park with George.” The show is inspired by the painting "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat, one of the most famous paintings at the Art Institute and the iconic image for the Art-Work program.
The revelry continued inside where the acrobats mingled and played with the guests. Food and drink was in abundance as well. A short program with songs excerpted from “A Sunday in the Park with George” featured many talented Ranch Hands.
Then followed small group breakouts where guests could sample the Art-Work program, facilitated by Art-Work corporate facilitators and Art Institute educators.
