The Chicago Mosaic School Annual Fundraiser : A Celebration of Wine and Mosaic

HAMMERED! is a fun event where you can experience the unique art community of CMS 1127 West Granville Ave.

Entering our 15th year as the only school for Mosaic Arts outside of Europe, The Chicago Mosaic School has proudly dedicated itself to advancing the fine art of mosaics and providing opportunities for comprehensive arts education and study. We’ve been able to change the lives of our students, as well as the school and community partners that we serve– and there is more that we can do in our new facility at 1127 West Granville, in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood!

HAMMERED! 2019 will include appetizers, tours of the school and studios, and the opening of Visiting Artist Maestro Verdiano Marzi’s exhibition Incandescenze which will open that evening at our Gallery of Contemporary Mosaics (GoCM). Additionally, our fundraiser will showcase demos and discussions with CMS artists + faculty to show off what we can do!

As a unique non-profit arts organization in our 15th year, we are the only school for Mosaic Arts outside of Europe. We continue to change the lives of our students, the school and community partners that we serve– and there is more that we can do!
