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


Because October is Chicago Artists Month (CAM) the arts calendar is busier than ever, featuring events highlighting many local artists and organizations. In this final stretch of the month there is a lot of art to see. This weekend a couple of openings take place on the north side at Firecat and ArtDe Triumph, and several are happening in the West Loop: visit Aspect/Ratio, McCormick, Linda Warren, Kasia Kay and Mars

Chicago's favorite home furnishings source turns 25 this month - stop into The Golden Triangle to say congratulations! Browse what else is happening every day in the art scene and plan ahead with our calendar of events
