Here’s the deal. Even though there’s always so much to do on the weekends thats art related, many art/music/and other events get overlooked. Unless you’re following your favorite local bands/bars/art galleries on Facebook or Twitter, you’re more than likely going to miss out on some really cool stuff!
So I’m test running a new blog feature that will be posted every week. The feature we’ll list events things to do in Chicago or in the western suburbs during the weekend. So anytime you’re looking for something to do at the last minute or you’re visiting Chicago- stop by and see what I recommend!
Museum of Contemporary Art • This Will Have Been: Art, Love & Politics in the 1980s
This exhibition started on February 11th, but it will be gone on June 3rd. This exhibit acts like a time machine and touches base on many popular events/subjects related to this decade such as “The End”, Gender, and changes in Mass MediaAnna Kunz, The Day, 2011)
University of Illinois at Chicago’s Gallery 400 • Spectral Landscape (with Viewing Stations)
Yes, it’s true. UIC has a fabulous art gallery and incredibly talented curators & artists working together to make the gallery something truly special. Starting Friday, April 27th, check out the Spectral Landscape exhibit focusing deeply on the color spectrum.
Allen & Pepa Architects • Aurora, IL • Mechanical Energy
Come check out the 3 in its series: Mechanical Energy …. The first installment was at Fermilab and the second at Water Street Studios.

BENEDICTINE UNIVERSITY • LISLE, IL • BEN BASH 2012 WITH COBRA STARSHIP
Benedictine University is celebrating their 125th anniversary at the Ben Bash 2012 on Saturday, April 28th. Not exactly “artsy”, but oh so much fun! Last time I checked, tickets were only $20 for anyone. You don’t have to be a BenU student to attend.
I’m still in my “testing” phase of my blog and seeing what feature ideas take off or not. As I get more comfortable with this feature, I’ll start posting it earlier in the week to give you a better heads up!
