for all of you who are interested in seeing a spectacle today, I’d recommend heading down to Garfield Park at 1 pm for a show of Unlympics, a game of “class conscious” kickball. It’s part of a larger scheme created by Anne E. Moore, ” a month-long series of quirky sporting events aimed at encouraging debate about Chicago‚Äôs bid for the 2016 Olympics,” according to Chitown Daily News. Moore is currently working through a month-long residency at InCUBATE, a wonderful and ingenuitive space next to The Congress Theater.

here is a link to the unlympics website.

see you there?
