Dear Artists, Urban Sketchers and Jazz Fans,
As part of the Chicago Artist Month in Chicago, Urban Sketchers Chicago has teamed up with Lewis Achenbach and the Vincent Davis Trio to participate in a first ever Live Music Sketch Crawl, an event called "Jazz Occurrence #6". 

What we are trying to do is to fill up the room with Urban Sketchers and artists to come and sketch, draw, or paint while live jazz musicians from the Vincent Davis Percussion Plus perform just for us. It will be unlike any sketch crawl we have ever had and we hope you can attend.

The tickets are super inexpensive (just $10) for such an event and it will help pay for the amazing musicians and the venue. Tickets are available now. Then be sure to bring your art supplies.

A Jazz Occurrence is defined as a union of the Sonic Arts and the Visual Arts. A JAZZO is a performance in a creative environment of something close to complete freedom, forming, essentially, a third hybrid exponential enlightening art-form. The idea is to capture the ‘frequency in the room’ on canvas. This project supports the notion that creative music is vital and progressively positive and therapeutic. The Jazz Occurrence is also a documentary in progress, combining concert footage, painting performance, audience reaction, musician interviews and animations. 
Lewis Achenbach is the founding artist and 'phantom keystone' of the project.
An elementary education CPS Jazz Occurrence is also in the works for CAM. Where kids for K-5 will 'paint to the music' both recorded and live. These artworks will be part of the JOAE.
The JOAE (Jazz Occurrence Art Exhibition) is a traveling show; a caravan of artistic experimentation. For CAM, the exhibiton JOAE3 is currently seeking a exhibition space for the increduble artworks yet to be produced, mid November (email me at

    1. Hope to see you there Toni. We rarely get live entertainment at our sketch crawls so this will be special.
