Free with Museum Admission and for Elmhurst Art Museum Members

In his Sonic Incantation, Santa Lucia will use the altars designed for his intervention "No Place Like House" to guide viewers through a central ritual of Miesian Mysticism. The performance will activate the altars within the house to bring viewers/listeners to a new understanding of the McCormick House, not didactically, but emotionally. Ear plugs will be provided to all viewers/listeners. For more information, visit the Elmhurst Art Museum event page.
