A Tribute to Takashi Murakami


Join us on Monday, June 19th at 5:30 p.m. on the first floor of the Chicago Athletic Association hotel as we pay homage to Takashi Murakami. We’ll be joining our friends from Cindy’s to celebrate the artist and his new exhibition at the MCA, The Octopus Eats Its Own Leg, right on top (literally!) of the custom installation from Murakami in the hotel’s Tank space.

The installation is inspired by one of Takashi Murakami’s original characters, in his signature “Superflat” concept which pairs traditional Japanese painting techniques with a contemporary, animé-inspired aesthetic within a flattened picture plane.

We’ll be serving a Japanese Highball from Paul McGee and a Tokyo-inspired snack from Chef Pete Coenen.
