Seventeen quilts are on display at Urban Edge through October 14th. The exhibit is open Friday through Sunday, noon to 7pm. Groups and classes may arrange times outside of set times by contacting the Waukegan Arts Council at (847) 920-4ARTS.

He performs all the hits with great precision while moving to MJ's intense choreography. Complete with costume changes, a live band and professional dancers, this show will give you goose bumps. In fact, the performance is so real, spellbound fans have been known to shout out, "we love you Michael!"
