This year's autumn season in Chicago should be renamed #artseason. From September through December 2017, the city will be enamored with arts oriented events across every neighborhood: the Chicago Architecture Biennial, EXPO Chicago, Open House Chicago, and a number of other events will be at the top of the list for every art lover and advocate across the city, not to mention the innovative and interdisciplinary installations popping up all over town in celebration of the city's Year of Public Art.
But before the insanity endures mid-month, take a moment to consider pre-gaming with us at our very own autumn debut, Art Walk - taking place next Thursday, September 7th in the River North gallery district. Hosted by the Board of Directors of the Evening Associates at the Art Institute of Chicago, Art Walk will take you on a grand exploration of about a dozen galleries and boutiques in River North, open late just for you. You'll have the option of taking one of two routes through the neighborhood, revisiting an array of interdisciplinary practices and works of art by contemporary artists. We'll end our night with cocktails at a new(ish) city escape, Marshall's Landing, and have an opportunity to prepare our eyes and ears (and livers) for the next few months of everything ART & Architecture here in Chicago.
