Chicago’s source for art gallery news, events, and listings

Septhp.v1

It's the end of the summer but there is still art to see this month before the big fall season kicks off in just a couple weeks. Check out what's happening tonight, this weekend and next week, or you can plan ahead for September 5 and beyond with our openings list.

Soon, we'll share the latest news on openings, art happenings, art fairs (EXPO is September 19-21 and SOFA is November 7-9) and more. Soon our fall features will be online, so check back often. 

Coming up in the waning days of August are chances to explore sculpture parks, museum family days, walking tours, and more. Read the highlights and interviews in our news pages, where we feature Tony Fitzpatrick's Secret Birds at the Poetry Foundation, an interview with painter Gwendolyn Zabicki, and Jaume Plensa's installations in Millennium Park
