Chicago Gay Men's Chorus
Day 47: You are original. Art comes in all shapes, sizes, and sounds! Today, we're inviting your family to celebrate your creativity through music. Watch this video about Chicago Gay Men's Chorus and the community that music helped them create.

Chicago Gay Men's Chorus hosts a space where art and music unifies people. Roberto Lopez notes that the chorus has created a family, making a difference in his well-being and sense of belonging. When we create together, we share a piece of ourselves with the world, building connection and community.

Nick Cave's Sound Suit
Music in motion! Nick Cave is a fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist. He combined his passions in the creation of his sound suits - wearable art that makes sound when you move!

Woosh... Zip... Ting! These musical social justice suits were created to protect those who wear them from discrimination.

Grab some items from around your house that make noise when they move together and create your own sound suit. Cave associates making noise with protest and positive change. Make your suit inspired by an issue you are passionate about. Check out more about how to start your sound suit with the Whitney Museum of American Art . Don't forget to dance in your sound suit!
