April is here, along with some unseasonably warm and beautiful weather, and that means it's time for our "...Got Art?" blog to encourage you to get out and enjoy a fresh collection of shows and events this month.
For me, my investment in the Chicago dance scene is a very compelling reason to stay. We have spent the last four years plié-ing and tendu-ing and learning about Martha Graham, but we have also been building connections and networking.
As a truly global city, Chicago offers up an almost endless variety of culture. From the high arts to pure entertainment, our city has music, performance, art, culinary and comedy venues for nearly every taste.
It's February and time to help to highlight some of the very cool art happenings going on around town and give you a nudge to see some of them or all of them. Getting a little bit (more) of art in one's life is never a bad thing.
We had another weekend of strong exhibitions opening. The long awaited arrival of the new DePaul Art Museum is here. The opening show, titled Re: Chicago is exceptional; full of treasures, contexts and curiosity.
