Art for the Deep Freeze

The world is ending! 

No, it's just really cold in Chicago, and pretty much everywhere. 

So, since many of us will be working from home for the next day or two (aka binge watching TV and checking emails with closure notices) it's a good chance to view art virtually if you can't make it into the galleries and museums. Check out what's new from gallery artists and be inspired for your next physical visit – when the temperature is back up over 0° soon.

Here for you are some art picks for the cold snap. 

Part II this week will be Art to Warm You Up! 

And remember, in case you're bold enough to consider venturing outside, many area galleries and museums are closed January 30 (and maybe Jan 31) so please check with each space in advance before visiting.
