Here we go again. With a very limited number of exceptions, most Chicago galleries open their fall season this weekend. This is the weekend those who usually don't make it to the Friday night openings get out and get seen.
It used to be that the quality of art exhibits declined during the summer months. And while it's still true that the art business season tends to follow the school year, we're seeing solid exhibits all year.
The brilliant sculptor, Nancy Rubins, is in town from L.A. installing her mind-boggling, gravity defying, big sculpture on the front lawn of Navy Pier, comprised out of something in the neighborhood of 30 discarded canoes.
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.
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.
