The Chicago Maritime Festival offers programs to area schools, libraries, senior venues, and people with disabilities. We have served over almost 29,000 individuals during out outreach programs. The festival underwrites most of the outreach program cost; however, a token fee of $75 per performance is required. There are a limited number of performances available February 19 through February 21, 2014. Call 773-576-7245 for more information or e-mail email@example.com.

Classroom Workshop - The Art of Ship in a Bottle
A single complementary classroom workshop is offered to a school with each outreach performance that is booked. The presenter in 2014 is Glen Braun.
The Art of Ship in a Bottle with Glenn Braun Learn the art and technique of this centuries old craft from a master along with other ship model building tips and demonstrations. Glenn Braun built his first ship model at age six and has since built models professionally most of his adult life. With hundreds of models, ships-in-the-bottle, wood carvings, and other maritime related arts to his credit, Glenn's work can be seen in museums and private collections all over the globe. After almost twenty years at the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City, Glenn has recently relocated to the Chicago area, wading into the rich traditions of the Great Lakes, the Mississippi, and other waterways of the Midwest.
