Homeroom is proud to announce to a few exciting happenings to look forward to this spring season. 

On April 17th, around 8am, we will premiere our first presentation of this year's Breakfast Serial on Homeroom's Instagram account. Debuting with a fabulous new nine panel work from comic artist, activist, and Chicagoan Vicko Alvarez, this series promises to add a little thought and creativity to your morning commutes. 

Every Thursday evening throughout the month of May, Homeroom extends a curatorial hand at the Comfort Station for another rendition of its Comfort Music series. This year finds us focused on bringing together Chicago's finest songwriters and contemporary improvisers, the likes of Joshua Abrams, VV Lightbody, Jacob Wick, and Half Gringa. We're very excited.

Comfort StationElastic Arts, and Homeroom will jointly present a canonical film as part of Comfort Station’s Silent Films and Loud Music Series on May 12th at Elastic Arts. The silent film Within Our Gates  (1920) by Oscar Devereaux Micheaux will be screened with accompanying original music by Chicago composers and performers Paul Giallorenzo and Ben Lamar Gay. Micheaux, an author, film director and independent producer of more than 44 films, is regarded as the first ever major African-American feature filmmaker. The Chicago group VAD will also share the evening with Paul and Ben, scoring Light of Faith (1922).

You and yours are more than encouraged to attend any and all of these events. We look forward to seeing you this spring!
