Inspired by the major exhibition Morbid Curiosity on display at the Cultural Center, Project Onward presents a collection of paintings and drawings that commemorate the lives -- and deaths -- of performers who went out in a blaze of glory at the age of 27. Beginning with blues legend Robert Johnson, the “27 Club” went on to include Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and, most recently, Amy Winehouse.

Project Onward is a program of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in partnership with the Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, and is partially funded by grants from the Dr. Scholl Foundation and the I.A. O'Shaughnessy Foundation.
